Kayak Angler

Outdoor Market - writingKayak Angler celebrates the intersection of fishing and paddlesports.The readership ranges from first-timers on up to salt-stained hot sticks — anyone who loves to fish from a chunk of plastic or composite.
Kayak Angler publishes four issues annually, in February (Spring), May (Summer) August (Fall) and November (Winter). They do most of their editorial scheduling in September for the upcoming year, but do accept submissions at any time.
The magazine is open to ideas, but flip through one or more of their recent issues first. It’s the best way to understand the magazine’s format, subject matter and style. All back issues of the magazine are available online for free at www.kayakanglermag.com.
Kayak Angler is always in the market for articles that have depth, emotional impact and take-away value for the reader, complemented by striking photos.
The best way to assess their interest in your idea is to send a brief summary of your idea — a query. Queries should present a clear and specific idea, not merely a general topic, and should reflect familiarity with the magazine’s content and tone. Kayak Angler will rarely consider a story without good photos, and will occasionally buy a story based on exceptional photos alone. Be prepared to supply or source professional-quality, high-resolution digital images to accompany your article.
They will reply to your query within eight weeks if they are interested in your idea.
Writers submitting story ideas should be aware that the editors at Kayak Angler may already have assigned or be working on a similar story.
