Using a Drift Chute when Drift Fishing from a Kayak

I do a great deal of drift fishing from the kayak and find a drift chute a great asset for that type of fishing.   Below is a video showing different ways a drift chute can be used when casting lures from the kayak or vertical jigging.


  1. Hi colleagues, its great paragraph on the topic

  2. Hi Rob can u reccomends what size of drogue to purchase , really could have done with one today

    1. I purchased the one I use from Kayak UK and the following is the link:
      It has a diameter of about 34" and works fine for my 13ft kayak. Never tried another one to compare. The good thing about this chute is that it has two options as shown in the video, one to have the chute deployed with a short rope, and the other long (about 6ft). This means if you are drifting too slow in light winds you use the short, and use the long for maximum resistance. Having used a drift chute when drift fish for some time now, I would not want to be without one and cannot recommend having one enough. If you were out today, I can understand you wishing you had one as it was a bit breezy. Hope you caught a few. Rob.
