Modern Kayak Fishing is an online shrine to all things related to kayak fishing, originally built as a simple journal (known as 'Yakabout' at the time) that followed a coastal kayak fishing expedition undertaken by Josh Holmes in 2007. Soon after Josh's journey came to an end 8 months later the site began evolving into an information portal.
Slowly but surely as more content was added it's audience grew and before we knew it Yakabout.com.au became Yakass.net and a few years later it evolved into what you see today.
Modern Kayak Fishing is a feature and content-rich website featuring videos, articles, gear reviews, trip & destination reports, yak fishing strategies, how-to guides and even recipes. There's enough content to be found to keep yak fishing enthusiasts engaged for weeks, if not months.
Modern Kayak Fishing is updated frequently, so users are encouraged to bookmark the site and check back often. Visitors are encouraged to register as a member and create a user profile for enhanced commenting features and other options.

About Josh Holmes
Josh Holmes is 41 years old and has around 30 years fishing experience, over 20 years kayaking experience and more than a decade of kayak fishing experience under his belt. Born in Victoria Australia, Josh grew up catching carp, redfin and trout and then moved on to salt water fishing after moving closer to Port Phillip Bay. It is here that he took his first humble steps into the world of kayak fishing and hasn't looked back since. Since getting busy with kayak fishing, Josh has covered tens of thousands of kilometers on kayaks up and down the east coast of Australia and caught countless fish, ranging from humble bread and butter species to pelagic bruisers including various tuna, mackerel, trevally and shark species.
Josh has many years of experience in the outdoor recreation industry, nicely balanced with an almost equal regime in IT as well as journalism - a combination that makes the inception of this site a no-brainer given the circumstances. Josh lives and breathes kayak fishing and has done for years.
