Ryan is a kool dude in my book any day. Remember meeting him for the first time at ARW and he caught a leopard shark, he was thrilled. Great guy who loves this sport is becoming quite the kayak angler. Right on bro, like for many others on here, including myself, NCKA is a life saver.

Yes, so nice  to be able to forward NCKA input.  Kayak Fishing Magazine goes out to the WORLD!!

And, this is the most heartfelt piece I've had the pleasure to publish.  Thanks for the attaboy to Ryan, everyone, he deserves it in spades.

Good read.   Different circumstances, but I know the feeling of being out of touch in your own life.   Kayak fishing really changed things for me too.  There's no going back! Lol

We are what we pretend to be, so we must be careful about what we pretend to be.

I want to stay as close to the edge as I can without going over. Out on the edge you see all kinds of things you can't see from the center.

People arenít supposed to look back. Iím certainly not going to do it anymore.Ē
