ACK Demo Days is a unique experience for paddlers. Weather you are in the market for a new kayak, or just getting into the sport, it gives you the opportunity to try out the kayaks in the market and determine what is right for you, before you make a purchase.
If you ever pulled up to shore after a long day of fishing, got out your kayak, and realized that the deck looked like a yard sell; you might need some help with organization! The rear tank well has always been one of the best places to keep your gear for easy accessibility while using a crate will guarantee your gear doesn’t wander off during your day on the water.
The reality is that a standard PFD can feel bulky when you’re juggling a lot of fishing gear or trying to paddle to a honey spot, ultimately getting in the way of your comfort. Fortunately, there’s a lot of PFDs that address these issues by catering specifically to paddlers and kayak anglers.
As the weather starts heating up and sweaty, sunny days out on the water await us, have you got your fishing wardrobe ready? The best thing you can do for your comfort and skin protection when you’re out kayak or SUP fishing in the sun is to opt for a long-sleeve shirt made out of light, breathable material.
With winter on its way it is time to think about storage solutions to keep your outdoor gear warm and cozy during its cold weather hibernation.
In 2011, friends Will Stauffer-Norris and Zak Podmore ventured from Wyoming’s Wind River Mountains to the Gulf of California in Mexico. The adventure took them 113 days and over 1,700 miles of hiking and paddling.
I recently embarked on a trip out to the great wide open of West Texas and took some products we sell here at ACK along for the trip. Let me start right off the bat by saying everything I used served its purpose very well and I will give you a rundown of what I used, how I used it and what I may have run into along the way.
We met Shane Townsend, outdoor blogger for Bat City Outdoors and avid paddler, halfway through his mission to write about fifty paddles in Texas that anyone can do. We decided it was the perfect opportunity to do some product testing and got him outfitted with some NRS dry bags.
