As a kayak angler, your paddle is an indispensable tool that provides both the motor and the ability to position yourself precisely where you want to be to catch and land fish.

Bending Branches’ line of kayak fishing paddles has been developed over several years by talking to kayak anglers to find out what they want in a paddle.

We’ve designed, tweaked, tested, listened and tweaked some more (and will continue the process) to produce our Kayak Angler Series. We believe you can’t find better options no matter what your experience or budget is. We have a kayak fishing paddle that’s perfect for you.

As you go through this list, you’ll notice that as the paddle goes up in price point, it goes down in weight. That’s due to the materials we use at each level.

You’ll also notice these paddles area available with either a snap-button or Plus Telescoping ferrule system. The snap-button is your traditional basic ferrule. The Plus gives you both more feathering options and an adjustable-length option. That’s super handy if you have an adjustable-height seat on your kayak or use different boats (read more about that here).

Having the right paddle gets you to those great fishing spots easier, quicker and with less strain on your body. And with the extra features our paddles have, it’ll be one of your most usable tools for more than just paddling.

Each of the following Angler series paddles is available in several different lengths. For help choosing the right length for you, refer to our Kayak Fishing Paddle Sizing Guide.

Let’s take a look…

Bending Branches’ Line of Kayak Fishing Paddles

Angler Rise—Our most affordable kayak fishing paddle. The Angler Rise is perfect for those just “getting your toe in” kayak fishing, or for the occasional angler. At only $74.95 the Rise features an aluminum shaft and polypropylene blades. Even at this crazy-low price, you get the hook retrieval system on the blade.

Angler Scout—The next step up, priced at only $99.95, the Scout has a built-in tape measure and hook retrieval system just like our pricier paddles. The shaft is ovalized aluminum with a snap-button ferrule. The blades are sturdy epX Engineered Polymer. The Scout is available with sage green or orange blades.
Angler Classic—This paddle is the best selling kayak fishing paddle on the market, and for good reason. It gives you all the bells and whistles our high-end fishing paddles do, at a price any kayak fisherman can afford. The snap-button ferrule model is priced at $139.95, and the Plus Ferrule model is $164.95. The shaft is ovalized fiberglass—a little lighter, and warmer on your hands. The blades are epX Engineered Polymer. Available with either sage green or orange blades.

Angler Ace—A big step up is the Ace, a truly phenomenal fishing paddle. It features a dual tape measure in both inches and centimeters. The all-carbon shaft is extremely durable and light, and is available with both a snap-button ferrule ($199.95) and Plus Ferrule ($224.95). The blades are carbon-reinforced nylon for extra toughness and effortless pull through the water.
