Caney Fork guy out of water…or a Hobie guy in a NuCanoe world

Last weekend was an extremely tough one for me.  My Joy was at St. Thomas with her dad, so I was home without her (he is home now! And so is she).  I had worked too long a week and was completely exhausted…and the real problem; there was no tournament.  Did you hear me…no tournament … Continue reading Caney Fork guy out of water…or a Hobie guy in a NuCanoe world

Hobie like your Barishnikov…or not…

Just home from Guntersville, I went there after attending the “Fishing for Soldiers” event where a bunch of us from Clarksville fished Chickamauga.  It was a pretty awesome tournament, and they had some pretty cool raffle prizes.  I was fortunate enough to pick up a Hobie H-Crate jr, and a Stanley Cooler…but the real winners … Continue reading Hobie like your Barishnikov…or not…

kayaks with motors….an opinion

I love kayak tournaments.  I have been a part of every event I can find since the first CAKFG event I fished three – maybe four - years ago.  I travel thousands of miles annually chasing them because I love the comradery, the competition and the adventures my wife and I share as we travel.  … Continue reading kayaks with motors….an opinion

Oauchitalking ’bout….

I was fortunate to fish the last Hobie BOS event of the inaugural season on Lake Guntersville last weekend. As always, AJ and Kevin along with Frank Stapleton ran a flawless event; showing the crowd that they are here to deliver premier events.   I didn’t finish well enough to make the TOC…but I guess there is … Continue reading Oauchitalking ’bout….

sorry Siri….please take me home!

Joy and I were driving back from the Southeast regional last weekend.  I was trusting that the directions coming through my phone were accurate….it has been a very hard transition for me to trust it.  It was taking me on a different path than it ever had from Florence, Alabama and I was a bit … Continue reading sorry Siri….please take me home!

..CAKFG…my first second family…

CAKFG battle of the creeks…. To say I was excited by the prospect of a local tournament on the creeks…which included Yellow Creek….in the afternoon, in late August would be an understatement. The tourney was slated to run from 4 to 10 p.m. on any one of the local creeks between here  (Clarksville) and Dover, … Continue reading ..CAKFG…my first second family…

thank you…that is all…

I wanted to do a quick post about the FLW/KBF/DeeZee/Yakattack….and all of the other sponsors listed on the kayak village banner. Thank you!.  This was one of the most incredible events! I also want to mention TRC covers who gave all of the KBF competitors a free rod cover!  You didn’t have to do that, … Continue reading thank you…that is all…

Hank Parker…no pic…you kidding me!

Back home from the KBF/FLW event on Lake Oauchita….working on a formal recap, but this is my personal “I always dreamed of being here, there goes Hank Parker, this was AWESOME (except for only finishing 24th – but it was out of 72 anglers)” post.  To be honest, I don’t want to spend time talking … Continue reading Hank Parker…no pic…you kidding me!
