More InfoKayak Fishing: When your fishing style calls for heavy duty equipment, the Boomerang Big Catch Pliers is a must have with retractable nylon cable, solid aircraft aluminum handles and heavy duty reinforced composite grips.
More InfoPaddling: Shorter days are just around the corner -- it's always better to be prepared when nightfall catches you by surprise with a removable Scotty Sea Light.
More Info Transportation: Some of us love our kayaks more than our vehicles but for those that have a soft spot for theirs, protect it with the Thule Waterslide Protective Mat when loading and unloading.
