The biggest problem with freshwater kayak fishing in the UK is the lack of access. Every piece of water is privately owned and vested interests are everywhere preventing new users from access to their venues. Jackson team member Terry Wright has spent the last five years negotiating with Anglian Water to try and get us access ...

Sure, Southwest Airlines has its “Wanna get away?” commercials. But apparently, more and more criminals among us are applying that motto to water, making their get-away by, believe it or not, kayak or canoe. In the past year, we’ve unearthed as many as five escape attempts where perps have used paddlecraft in an attempt to avoid prison time. Following are a few of our faves: #1: Bring a paddle Up a Creek: According to the Seattle Times, this past summer a thief got himself into trouble after stealing a canoe and then launching himself onto Puget Sound. The plan might have worked, say Burien police authorities, had he not forgotten a rather important piece of equipment: a paddle. It all started when the 20-year-old miscreant walked onto someone’s beachfront property in Seahurst and stole a 10-foot canoe. When the man saw that there were no paddles in it, he improvised by using a shovel. #2: If you’re running from the authorities, don’t call them. Up a Creek (continued): That proved too much......

As I loaded my boat on to the car Friday night, thoughts of Oceana and Bridal Veil zoomed through my mind. I always have a strange mixture of fear and excitement when I’m about to run a new river. Running class 5 for your first time is like running your first river, you never know ...

As the end of 2014 drew near it was time for the River Bassin championship. That meant a chance to fish the Coosa river, and possibly break my personal best spotted bass. I’m glad to say I accomplished both! While I landed my personal best spot several times over in practice, and in competition, the trip ...

If you can follow directions, you can build a sea kayak from a kit. If you could program a VCR, you can probably do this. The post Rides: Bob Bonnen’s Pygmy Arctic Tern 17 appeared first on Canoe & Kayak Magazine....

My Dad always used to say that life went by in the blink of an eye, one day you are 16 and the next you wake up and you are 60.”It will all be over before you know it, so make sure you are having fun!” he would say. It took me a long time ...

Day in and day out there are baits that have proven to be the best for bass. If you had limited space or were on an extremely limited bassin’ budget what artificial baits would you have to have? Considering seasonality, cover, flexibility and what weather and water conditions you might face maybe your list would ...

A pop-up style tent that is mostly mesh and a good choice for dry, buggy trips, like high desert river canyons. We ran the 4.4lb, 3P version (as seen in pic) recently and it worked sweetly. You might not need the extra room the 3P provides but it does corral all your stuff, leaving plenty of room for cot and pad.

The Okere Falls Enduro. 2014 Okere Enduro Race Video from Josh Neilson Photography on Vimeo. The day dawned on what could be better described through the amazing journey through hell and back. A race that on paper looks pretty dam hard, but in reality it’s a whole lot harder. It’s an endurance race – the brain child of Ben Robson, a local Okere Falls kayaker. The race sees teams of 3 battle against each other in a race against the clock to complete the maximum number of laps in a 6 hour time period. We started in a flurry of paddle blades battling for pole position just below the control gates on the Kaituna River. I smashed and crashed into Tim Pickering, Jo Morley and Tyler Fox racing towards the shot. From the right came Carl Whitehead inching ahead of us and leading the pack of 30 paddlers into the first corner. Lungs began burning and we made moves and pushed for passing opportunities in the early parts of the of the river. Winding our way down I edged in front chased down by Tim Pickering. Out o......
