Great Boats, Great Writers, Great Photography Grace Annual Kayak Fish!

The talented production team at The Enthusiast Network is putting the final touches on the 2016 Annual Edition of Kayak Fish Magazine. Featuring a special section highlighting all the top paddle sports companies that cater to the ever-growing fishing market, this stunning issue is anchored by legendary writer, photographer, and protector of kayak fishermen’s rights to access public waters, Paul Lebowitz.

No writer has chronicled the growth of kayak fishing like Lebowitz, who has literally been on the ground (sand anyway) and on the water experiencing the growth of the sport for much of its existence and has reached out to the players who developed the boats that opened the way for innovation and a bunch of incredible catches on both the ocean and inland waterways!

And that’s where this issue of Kayak Fish takes it’s readers — from coast to coast and up to the Great Lakes and down the Mississippi River to flooded Louisiana timber.
