Mention world class fishing to a dedicated trout angler, and the conversation will soon turn to exotic or far away places: West Yellowstone and Missoula, MT; Glenwood Springs, CO; Grayling, MI; Creelsboro, KY; Bend, OR. Wait a minute - did he just say Creelsboro, KY? Why yes, yes I did.

The strength, stamina and fighting ability of a “silver king” make tarpon one of Florida’s most popular game fish. Experience the thrill!

Many paddlers have places that they count the days until they can return. It may be because the fishing was phenomenal, or the scenery was breathtaking... a multitude of reasons. Anyone who has spent time around me knows I have a love for the Okefenokee Swamp. Every time I paddle the dark tannic acid-stained water, it gets harder for me to leave. There is something for everyone in the swamp, whether they are paddlers, explorers, fishermen, or birdwatchers. If you enjoy adventure, you will fall in love with this wild place.
Seventy seven new kayak reviews were posted during our “Review Your Yak Win $100” contest.

Last month, we re-posted Kayaking Canuck’s photo of their two Viking Kayaks “Profish Reloads” and couldn’t believe the response it got from our US-based readers. Comments like “SLICK, I wish they were available in the States” and “That is a machine!! Where can I get one?” followed the release. We spoke with Viking Kayaks shortly after the post, and they told us they had yet to finalize anything in the US.
