Boating

Pick your watercraft - canoe or kayak, raft or drift boat, sailboat or ski boat. From rivers to reservoirs, self-propelled to internal combustion, raging whitewater to serene, sun-dappled pools, we can pretty much do it all here. The only limit is your ability, ambition, and the distance you're willing to drive.

Like most anglers, I'm always looking for the perfect do-it-all boat – one that's compact, stable, performs well on both rivers and lakes, and can get into those hard-to-reach honey holes, yet doesn't weigh more than my dad's Winnebago. Read more >>

Do you yearn for a break from the hum-drum, are you aching for adventure? Then come to the river. There's nothing wrong with acknowledging your need for the danger of rapids, or the constant pull of the current. Read more >>
