Update 10/8/09: The Wilderness Systems Commander 120 has arrived
On October 1, we hosted a special Kayak Fishing Pro Staff Workshop at our Cameron Village location. This workshop was taught by the renowned kayak fishing guide, Chad Hoover. Owner of KayakBassFishing.com, Chad Hoover is also a member of the Wilderness Systems Pro Kayak Fishing Team and plays a key role in the design of kayaks and gear used in Kayak Fishing. Chad has a new book coming out soon and his knowledge in the area of Kayak Fishing is both broad and deep.
The Pro Staff Workshop was designed to train, certify and prepare our staff for many of the technical challenges associated with properly outfitting a kayak for Kayak Fishing. For example, the Workshop included lots of hands on time properly mounting Flush Mount Rod Holders, Anchor Trolley Systems (that actually work), Anchor Types, Transducers, Rudders and numerous details associated with custom installation and outfitting for Kayak Fishing. The Workshop also covered subject matter unique to fishing for specific species and in specific environments that may include current, tides or flooded timber. The Pro Staff Workshop was attended by Great Outdoor Provision Co’s Paddlesports Department Managers from each of our store locations.
While each of our Paddlesports Department Managers has considerable knowledge in most aspects of Paddlesports, they all gained valuable insight and practical expertise from Mr. Hoover. What this means for our prospective customers is that Great Outdoor Provision Co. has the necessary expertise to cover all aspects of Kayak Fishing equipment –from selecting the proper boat and accessories to custom outfitting a kayak for fishing that is based on each customer’s unique needs.
