We are truly lucky to have someone like Chris that is knowledgable, loves paddling( just earned his ACA Level III Certification) . loves fishing & loves our paddling environment ,in our own backyard.
I can't tell you how many times I have FORCED Chris to put his store name on our projects. He says "I don't want to mix pleasure with business" , so I do it anyway.. I just thought EVERYBODY should know, just how much this guy loves what we do!!!!!!
