Grab your rod, put your kayak on the truck, throw the Stohlquist FISHERMAN Personal Flotation Device in the back, and go catch your limit.

It doesn't take a lot of guesses to find what Stohlquist designed the FISHERMAN Personal Flotation Device for. They gave this comfy PFD angler-specific features to help you land a big one. Two large front zip pockets hold your tackle and other necessities. The FISHERMAN Personal Flotation Device also includes four elastic holders to keep items like needle nosed pliers within easy reach. Stohlquist beefed up this flat-water PFD with 16lb 12oz of flotation to keep you well above the water line if your fish pulls at just the wrong moment and catches you instead of the other way around.

    I us my Stohlquist Fisherman PFD 3 or 4 times a week. I put it on before I step into my Kayak and don't take it off untill I get out 5 or 6 hours later. I'm 5'10" weigh 175 lbs and have the SM/MED and it fits perfect with plenty of adjustments for fit and comfort.

    I am looking for two pfds for adventure racing. I really want something with good pockets in the front. Would you recommend this one for something like that or another pfd?


    A Great PFD for the Kayak Angler

      This is a great PFD for the kayak angler because the back rides high and doesn't interfere with comfortable seating. Gotta love all those pockets for all the odds 'n' ends a fisherman takes with him/her. I got the "oversize" model as well, and the fit was perfect even though I take a 4XL-5XL. I would have preferred the Mango over the Cactus color for visibility; it always seems us big folk get fewer options, doesn't it? But that's a relatively minor thing compared to the PFD's functionality and performance.



        Got the "Oversize" which is really the "Universal" fit. This will fit from a small to a large. The drawback is that you have lots of extra strap material. I like all of the features. Great for float fishing.

        Is the Oversize the same as the Universal fit? Trying to get a read on the Oversize fit. I have seen other sites that have Universal fit that is for chest size 30" - 56".

        is the Stohlquist Fisherman Life Jacket a one size fits all ?

        It's not one size fits all. It has small, Medium, large/extra Large, and oversize.


        Comfort and functional- who can ask for more?

          I've been searching for just the right PFD for use with my pontoon boat. This model looked good so I thought I'd give it a try. It's very comfortable and functional. I flyfish from my boat so having my fly tackle readily at hand on my PFD means less clutter up-front on the boat and no need for a FF-vest over the PFD. Highly recommend this product.


          Stolquisht Fisherman PFD

            Have had my Stolquist Fisherman for about a month now and like it quite a bit. My only complaint would be that I'd like a couple of soft exterior pockets in addition to the hardshell/table pockets in the front. Other than that it's great, comfortable, good attachment points for tools, etc.


            nice product

              this is a nice PFD, very comfortable.
              I have not flipped over my kayak yet, so I am not sure about the flotation of this PFD. I wish I never need to test that.

              I fish on a small boat on Lake Erie ; How's the floation if your go overboard in big water and had to stay afloat for hours versus fishing in a stream or small lake?
