About the Author

Andy Benham has been a sea angler for as long as he can remember, growing up on Brighton beach with a fishing rod in his hands and owning a variety of small boats through his teens. He then moved into journalism, and worked on a number of magazines, including Angling Times, Sea Angler, Trout & Salmon, Boat Angler and Improve Your Coarse Fishing. During his time working on the angling magazines he was able to fish with some of the UK's best anglers, and was lucky enough to fish in some amazing locations, including making a Nile Perch video with TV legend John Wilson. Andy then moved on to spend a spell at the BBC, and worked for magazines such as BBC Wildlife and Countryfile. More recently Andy has quit the rat race and moved to a house overlooking the sea in South Devon. He become Sea Angler's regular kayak fishing correspondent in 2009 and has written a series of articles on the subject for the magazine.

3.0 out of 5 stars Just not enough on fishing 27 Dec 2010
By Wiggles
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I should start off by saying this is a good all round kayaking booking more so aimed at the person starting off.

I had hoped that it would focus a lot more on the actual art of sea fishing from a kayak, but instead it just provides the real basics and leaves you looking for another book to provide more detail.

Could really do with a follow up book that talks just about the fishing.

5.0 out of 5 stars Recommended for entry into the sport 13 Oct 2012
Really liked this book. Simple and easy to understand and just the job to get you raring to go if you're a beginner like me. That said, as I get more experienced, I can't see it straying too far from my bedside table!

5.0 out of 5 stars At last the UK breeds its own book! 21 Sep 2010
By Snapper
Here at last is the title for which us British kayak anglers have been waiting for; Andy Benham's `Discover Kayak Fishing'. For those of us who like to have a rod in our hands and the paddle stowed this promises to be the ideal bookshelf companion for `Sit-on-top Kayak: A Beginner's Manual' by Derek Hairon, `Sea Kayak' by Gordon Brown and `Sea Kayak Navigation: A Practical Manual' by Franco Ferrero. The book itself is written by a lifetime angler and writer with a decent amount of time on the water under his belt and contains a wealth of knowledge useful to those looking to take up kayak angling. Written as a checklist and beginners guide it is a book to both pick up and read or dip into for ideas.

This book consists of thin card covers printed in full colour; the front and rear carry photographs and the inner covers and some rear pages carry advertisements from relevant companies. The inner pages are printed onto high-quality matte paper and the full-colour printing throughout does justice to the photography within and gives a crisp and very readable text. In height and width it matches the other Pesda titles; this is an irrelevance for a review but it does turn the Pesda books into a set on my shelf which is important to me as I'm a book lover and acquire books not just for the information contained within one title.

The layout of the book is very clear. A sharp, clear font with easy-to-read line-spacing and a large amount of clear, well-exposed and colourful photographs gives a feeling of brightness to each page. The graphics are simple and well suited - sharp edged photographs occasionally faded into the page or cut out. They each come with their own descriptive captions printed in blue italics so that they can be easily distinguished.
