Picture Of The Month



Clayman with a nice coastal Oregon Chinook.

 "A venturesome minority will always be eager to get off on their own,
and no obstacle should be placed in their path;
let them take risk, for God sake, let them get lost, sun burnt, stranded, drowned,
eaten by bears, buried alive under avalanches -
that is the right and privilege of any free American."
--Edward Abbey--

"Adventure is just bad planning."
--Roald Amundsen--

coast to decide if its “doable” when you get there.

It’s is a well-built workhorse that has no problem handling a big weight andis really easy to operate. I’ve spent over 6 months using the Depthmaster putting it through some of the nastiest to some of the best conditions that Puget Sound and various lakes could muster up and after it all there’s no other way I’d downrigger fish from my kayak.
