It was a camping trip that made me realize I needed a kayak to carry along as I stayed close to water. It seemed a waste to not go on the water when the back of the camper was almost touching it.
Shortly after, I fished a local Kayak tournament, then upgraded to a Hobie PA12…my life hasn't been the same since. I fish as much as possible, write about it when I have time (retired this year, so should have more time), and am doing all I can to get as many people as I can on the water – especially the grandkids.
After 28 years as a mfg engineer, I am looking forward to pedaling all the local waters…and still fishing tournaments.
