Our BKC FK184 is going to appeal to fishers who need a kayak that can be easily transported through airports, but who want a high-end kayak that is still affordable. The BKC FK184 comes pre-loaded with everything you need to catch fish in an average-sized river or lake, including kayak, fishing rod holders, hatches, a seat, and a paddle. Also included, but not seen in the photo, is the rear storage space and bungee cord for your fly boxes, holders, and accessories.

The BKC FK184 is designed with the same features as the original FK-184 model, which means that the BKC FK184 is an extremely stable, durable, high-quality kayak, perfect for any type of fisher.

The BKC FK184 is made to be easily transported by airlines. It's 12' x 19" with a load capacity of 330 pounds. It's 22" wide and has a width of 22". It has a load capacity of 330 pounds in its body, but can carry a lot more weight if you keep the kayak empty. When loaded, it weighs 76 pounds.

If you need a kayak that's able to handle a wide range of river and lake conditions, the BKC FK184 is a great option. It weighs only 76 pounds, but has a load capacity of 330 pounds. Because it's so light, you will be able to transport this kayak with a carton of golf clubs or a few days worth of fresh seafood.

This kayak comes with two watertight storage hatches, a seat with backrest, as well as a paddle. It has four flush mount rod holders and one articulating rod holder. The rod holders are made of stainless steel, and the flush mount holders are tucked a little further back than they appear in the photo above. This will help to avoid any accidents when you hit small rocks along parts of the river.

In the end, it will just be what you need, and none of the superfluous stuff that you don't. If you are looking for a simple, solid kayak that's designed to provide a good fishing experience, this is the kayak for you.
