Kayak Fishing Rod Holders

Rod Holders for Kayak Fishing

Most dedicated angling kayaks already come supplied with fitted rod holders. However, if you want to add extras, customise your kayak or upgrade a recreational canoe or kayak for fishing, then you can fit aftermarket rod holders to suit your needs. Below are our most popular choices from Feelfree, Scotty, Railblaza and RAM. If you are looking for anything from these brands that isn’t shown below, please contact us for availability and price.

Some of these kayak fishing rod holders will mount onto existing bases/plates/tracks already present on some kayaks, whereas others will need to be installed onto the kayak using tools and potential additional fittings (see bottom of this page). For adding rod holder bases, tracks or mounts please Click Here

Please note that you will need to match your mounting option to the brand of rod holder/s you will be using, as it is not commonly compatible to switch between different brands and re-use the same mounting systems. If you are unsure of what you may need to achieve your rod-holder set-up, then please don’t hesitate to Contact Us or call us on 01925 818437 and we can talk you through your choices.
