Kayak Fly Fishing Skill #3 – Roll Cast Pick-Up

Think of the roll-cast pick-up as an escape plan when you have a mess of line on the water. If you have slack line outside of your rod-tip, it will be very difficult to make a cast. A roll cast is made by placing the line behind you, raising the rod to the upright position [...]

Kayak Fly Fishing Skills #2 – Build a Better Back Cast

Fly casting from a kayak will surely test your casting skills, and most noticeably, the back cast. Because you are much closer to the water, your timing will simply need to be better. A fly rodder can usually get away with a slightly sagging back cast when standing on the deck of a flats boat [...]

Kayak Fly Fishing Skills – #1 The Pick Up

BHP Ducks Unlimited – Frontier 12 + Hunting Review

By Jim Tribol from BHP Ducks Unlimited The 360 mobility on the Frontier's seats are great as they swivel and that's perfect for duck hunting and adds versatility.

Southern Drawl Kayak Fishing Pursuit Review

 Posted by Steve Gibson, owner of Southern Drawl Kayak Fishing in Sarasota, FL. I've always wanted to design a fishing kayak, but I just don't have that talent. I'll leave that to the folks with that expertise. However, I've paddled quite a few different brands of fishing kayaks over the years, and I've had a few [...]
