Back to Reality: Video Highlight Reel of 100-Mile Adirondacks Expedition

In late April, I made the 24-hour drive to Saranac Lake, New York with professional kayak angler Robert Field and Action Hat founder / kayak fishing YouTuber Rex DeGuzman to meet Kayak Angler Magazine‘s web editor – Ben Duscheney – for our 8-day, 100-mile canoe fishing expedition in the Adirondack Mountains. We called the Northern Forest Canoe Trail between Old Forge and Saranac Lake home for the next eight days, dodging rocks on bigger-than-Texas-sized rapids, fighting aggressive fish, and portaging obnoxious amounts of camp and camera gear.

We also paddled pretty far too.

The trip was a marketing dream with four marketing-minded paddlers chasing rough adventure, big fish, and – most importantly – killer media. It’s a month later and the media is starting to drop. Here is the first of two YakFish TV highlight reels from the trip edited by Rex DeGuzman:

In the following months, YakFish TV expects to release another highlight reel edited by Robert Field and multiple twenty plus minute parts to a video series on the drama-filled expedition. On top of video coverage, both Kayak Angler Magazine and Canoeroots Magazine will be hosting feature stories in their upcoming print issues.

A Long Portage:

We're back after a really long portage. What used to be a roadtrip-centric canoe blog is now a bit more settled in the Texas Hill Country. We still believe canoeing is dated, not dead. And we still chase high CFS and sticky situations.

But we're not on a roadtrip battling for cell service from the backseat of the Jeep anymore. We're enjoying life off the road. The showers, hot meals, and stable jobs are nice too.

If the paddling road trip is what you're looking for, it's moved here.
