The holidays are over, but for many that means it’s soon to be the best time of the year. That’s right, it’s nearly time for the 2013 Winter Boat Shows!
ACK’s very own Kristian Kolflat, Austin Store Assistant Manager and KATS Tournament Director, was interviewed by Pat Kellner of FishTattoo. In the interview, Kristian speaks on ACK, KATS and kayak fishing in terms of both the industry itself as well as his own passion for the sport.
Alex from the ACK warehouse recently sent in this photo gallery from his day paddling around Austin’s urban waterway’s Barton Creek and Lady Bird Lake. Looks like he had a fun time, huh?
ACK recently sponsored the second annual Fun Fun Fun Fest Aqua Olympics at Fiesta Gardens in Austin, Texas. We were out promoting our SurfTech SUP lineup and of course our upcoming Demo Days, giving away some swag and hanging out with the good people of Austin, Texas.
ACK is excited to sponsor the second annual Aqua Olympics, an Austin original event involving a number of off-beat water competitions coupled with a festival on land that aims to be plenty of fun. The Aqua Olympics are associated with the popular music festival FunFunFun fest and are expected to bring close to a thousand in attendance!

Luke covers all the features of the boat including its impressive stability for sight fishing, its portability, and plenty of other built-in features.
Last week I got to step into the Paramount Theatre here in Austin, Texas for the first time and catch the 2012 Fly Fishing Film Tour and to represent ACK as a sponsor of the event. It was a neat evening with many familiar faces.
