  • Exploring the Connecticut River, Miles 132-124

    When I moved to New Hampshire over six years ago, I was excited about the fact that I was less than an hour away from the longest river in New England. 410 miles long, the Connecticut River winds its way from its headwaters near the Canadian border creating the border of Vermont and New Hampshire, and slicing through Massachusetts and Connecticut before providing 70% of the fresh water that enters Long Island Sound.

  • Catch Summer Smallmouth In Low Water

    I look forward to the water getting low enough to keep the rest of the world off of my river. This time of year, the highs are in the 90s for days in a row. The only rain that falls comes hard and fast in highly regionalized downpours that don’t show up on the stream flow gauge. The ground is too dry and too thirsty to let any of it get into the watershed. Read More
  • Sight Casting for Catfish

    Sometimes the lake or creek you target plays a cruel trick. You went in search of bass and everywhere you go schools of catfish and carp roam the water. When you lake hands you lemons, you go catch dinner. Read More

Ohero “Carbonado”
 
4.5
Reviewed by Greg Becker
"As much as I love 7’6”and 8’ spinning rods for flats fishing from my kayak, I’ve experienced two issues. The rod butts tend to get in the way when casting from a low seated position, and the leverage of the longer rod takes its toll on muscles and joints after hours of casting and “walking the dog” with a topwater plug. Enter Ohero Fishing’s new 7’ “Carbonado” series rods, specifically designed for kayak fishing. When I first spoke with..."
ENO (Eagles Nest Outfitters) “OneLink Sleep System”

Reviewed by Mark Watanabe
"A few months ago, the YakAngler crew took a ten-day road trip that took us from Louisville, KY all the way down into the Florida Everglades. We had lodging set up for a few stops, but the majority of the trip was unplanned. I wanted a quick solution that was easy to pack, didn’t take up much space, and could be deployed on uneven ground. Looking through online reviews,, I decided on the Eagles Nest Outfitters “OneLink Sleep..."

Reviewed by Mark Watanabe
"After seeing the Wilderness Systems “Ride 115x” on the showroom floor of the Salt Palace Convention Center at OR (Outdoor Retailer) 2013, I knew I wanted to get my hands on one. With some help from Wilderness Systems and Hook1, I had a slightly used Ride 115x dropped off at my campsite at last year’s Columbus Day Boondoggle. Wilderness Systems Ride 115x was designed with the input from the Wildy Pro Staff, and it shows. The kayak incorporates cool..."
