SWKA was Priveliged to be able to Test the New Wilderness Systems Thresher 155 Fishing Kayak today, first time in the UK and we have got to say what a cracking Kayak it is, lots of thought gone into it.It rides the waves beautifully resulting in a much dryer ride, stable as a rock and the well known wilderness seat for comfort, lots more extras but will mention that in the review in the coming months.
Welcome to the SWKA
The only official Kayak Fishing club in the UK. We hope you find the website easy and informative for all aspect of kayak fishing.
Our main aim is to raise money to help the RNLI and over the last 6 events have raised over £11000 and each year around October we meet up with the Local RNLI crew at Horton and Port Eynon where we present the proceeds from our event.
With over 80 members stretching all along the South Wales coast and now in quite a few parts of England. we arrange courses such as VHF Radio training and Paddle courses and offer help and assistance in anyway we can to help new kayak anglers in this fast growing extreme sport.
In 2011 we were invited to join Loughor Boat club where we now have a place we can call home and meet up for the usual club business and then a friendly chat about all things fishing.
We welcome new members to the club and meet at the Boat club on the last Tuesday of every month. So why not pop along to see us or join us on one of the organised fishing meets that occur most weekends.
