A Continuing Transition

With the continued growth of the sport of kayaking, it still shocks me just how many people continue to transition from power boats into these little plastic boats. Is it the maintenance costs?

When I look at how far the sport of kayak fishing has grown over the years, it’s pretty downright amazing.
