The Minnesota Kayak Fishing Association, a Twin Cities-based non-profit organization dedicated to the promotion of the sport of kayak fishing, is partnering with the Three Rivers Park District to host a park clean up day at the Lake Rebecca Park Reserve in Minneapolis.
This weekend, kayak anglers from around the country will be driving south to escape winter’s wrath at the Fifth Annual Presidents Day Boondoggle. Their destination: the largest designated sub-tropical wildlife reserve in North America - Everglades National Park. Their goal: to make new friends in the kayak fishing community and reunite with past Boondogglers, all while fishing the wild and untouched waters near Flamingo Campground.
I first met Paul Lebowitz in a fish camp in the panhandle of Florida. He was coming in to write about a new boat from Jackson Kayak, and I was there to photo it. He did not know a thing about me, nor did I know anything about him. “A redneck kayaker and a magazine editor from California meet in a fish camp…” sort of makes you want to wait on a punch line.
The 2015 Fly Fishing Film Tour (F3T) is fast approaching. From what I have seen in the trailers, this year’s tour is going to be the best.
After three rounds of voting the 2014 Kayak Angler’s Choice Awards have come to a close. Over 15,000 individual IP addresses, from twenty three countries participated this year, making this the most successful kayak fishing awards to date.
