Water Wednesday

Depending on which candidates you supported yesterday, today could be bitter or sweet. Or maybe both. I tend to not publicize my votes, talk politics much at all and really despise the process of picking most years. There is drama in every walk of life but one that has little drama 99.9% of the time is my passion, kayak fishing.

I wanted to have a day to allow everyone to remember what drives them to joy. It could be fishing, kayaking, both, gardening, hunting, origami etc etc. My obvious love of kayak fishing has brought me to name today, "Water Wednesday". No more politics. Just good kayaking talk from here on out.

I have several upcoming projects and will be investing significant amounts of time working on them. What does that mean? My posting will most likely be about once a week. I appreciate all the visits, questions, comments and shares. I think a big reason for the response has been trying to produce quality, useful content. Working on these projects will mean less blogging for a bit. I'll be around; don't worry. The once a week post is going to be my new norm for a while.

So what are the projects? Without divulging too much information, I'll be doing some extensive product reviews for a very well known company which I was approached by recently. I can't express how excited I am about this opportunity. I will also be working on a new e-book about kayak fishing. When it is released, it will be free to the first 500 subscribers. I expect it to be released next spring. My last major project is videography. I am somewhat limited in the number of people I can reach by having a writing platform. I want to expand into some video as well for those quick hit visual demos to help spread the kayak fishing knowledge I have learned from the school of hard knocks and by learning from the many ambassadors of kayak fishing I have met and fished with.

Are you saying, "I came here for the giveaway!"?

Not really a product, but I love hearing others philosophy on what rods they typically carry in their yak and for what techniques.

Drag systems- not anchors. New to yak fishing and want to reduce drift.
