Paddles Designed for Kayak Fishing
A description of the Bending Branches Angler product family.
The Angler Pro is Bending Branch's most distinctive kayak fishing paddle and has won Kayak Paddle of the Year every year since 2013.
Angler Pro is available in both carbon fiber and fiberglass blades. If you want the lightest paddle out there that's also incredibly stylish, the Angler Pro Carbon is for you. It weighs "only" 723g. If colorful paddles are more your style, you'll love BB's selection of fiberglass blade options. They are slightly "heavier" and weigh 822g.
Both models are available with either the Plus Telescoping Ferrule or the more affordable Snap-Button Ferrule. Plus offers adjustable lengths and infinite spring angles.
- Angler Pro Carbon Plus MSRP: SEK 4999
- Angler Pro Carbon Snap Retail price: SEK 4799
- Angler Pro Plus Retail price: SEK 3899
- Angler Pro Snap Retail price: SEK 3629
Below is a review from a kayak angler in the US using the Angler Pro.
"The first day I got a chance to use my beautiful new Angler Pro, the surf was head- high on the way in and out. I was thankful for the extra power the paddle provided me with to push me through. I really like the power of this paddle's face, and it has a flutter free stroke—well made for sure. Thanks for the awesome paddle, Bending Branches!"
(Rob K from Oahu, Hawaii., Anglo Pro owner)
The Navigator has been a reliable kayak paddle for years - and now Bending Branches has adapted it to be part of the Angler family too! It's their only wooden bladed kayak fishing paddle, the Angler Navigator is as beautiful as it is functional. A combination of alder, basswood (linden) and roasted linden that gives the leaves their distinctive appearance. Our patented Rockgard® edge protection means you don't have to be so careful with it.
Add a lightweight, tough 100% carbon fiber shaft with the built-in tape measure and you're ready for the water.

Another reliable paddle over the years, the Angler Ace got a different design, making it even better. BB kept 100% of the carbon fiber shaft and then increased the size of the carbon reinforced nylon blades for more power and efficiency with every paddle stroke. And they can still keep the weight down in the paddle, only 850g. The Ace is also available with either the Plus Telescoping or Snap-Button Ferrule system. Both include the built-in tape measure on the shaft.

- Angler Ace Snap Retail price: SEK 2319
When it comes to our more affordable kayak fishing paddles, don't think you'll be sacrificing quality or the benefits that high-end paddles give you!
The Angler Classic is BB's best-selling kayak fishing paddle, and for good reason. It combines a functional and durable fiberglass shaft with fiberglass reinforced nylon blades. Available in two colors and it's kind to your wallet. Just like BB's more expensive paddles, the Classic comes with a built-in measuring tape on the shaft and also with a "Hook retrieval system" on the blade. And as with their high-end models, it's available with either Plus Telescoping or the Snap-Button Ferrule system.
