Kayak Angling is a growing concern here in Western Canada and we are committed to being a part of the excitement and the growth.
Nikki Rekman Sales with help from Jackson Kayak, Kokatat Watersports Wear and Werner Paddles have created a Western Canadian Kayak Fishing Team. Currently we are working with two anglers, Stephen Laurie (Calgary, AB) and Len Zilkowsky (Chilliwack, BC). Both anglers are very active in their angling communities both on the water and online.
Online you can find them on the Canadian Kayak Anglers forum under fishnhound and fishwhisperer as well as on their blogs http://fishnhound.canadiankayakanglers.com and www.thefishwhisperer.ca
Steve is busy heading up the Eastlope Kayak Fishing Classic which will be on June 23rd at Glennifer Lake, AB and Len is prepping for the Kayak Fishing Seminar at Western Canoeing and Kayaking in Abbotsford, BC on March 16th at 7PM.
Both anglers will be fishing in their areas a lot this season so if you are out on the water, feel free to take their Jackson Kayak Coosa's and Cuda's for a paddle!!!
Stay tuned as we hope to feature additional anglers both in Western Canada and the Pacific Northwest.
