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:
