Being on water probably isn’t my best skill but it is definitely one of Ryan’s strenghts. He’s a fish… There’s no doubt in my mind that in his last life, Ryan was a merman. 🧜♂️ I knew I was going to have to get much better at it being on the water as Ryan and I became good friends because the kid could spend every free moment he has on some form of water. I was lucky enough to be able to gift Ryan a kayak for his birthday, with the hopes that he would help me catch a fish bigger than the size of my hand.
You see this all stems from a promise that was made over this past winter, where while ice fishing with Ryan, he helped me catch my first fish. Unfortunately it was only the size of a Reese’s peanut butter cup. See photo: https://www.instagram.com/p/BupPGBHFgfD/. After being out in what felt like Antarctic weather for the better part of a day and only catching this one fish, Ryan said that before we went back to college in the fall, he would try and help me catch something bigger than my hand. 🖐 So let’s go yakin!
A question that I got often after featured on the Nucanoe instagram story was: What color is that kayak? Bulldog Red! I was lucky enough to be able to snag Ryan a limited edition Frontier 12 in Bulldog! Being as I often am timid about going on the kayak I have become Ryan’s official photographer of adventure in action… Or at least that’s what I tell myself.
Living in Wisconsin we are fortunate enough to live by various bodies of water, and we have been able to change the set ups of the kayak to fit our needs for each adventure. I will be writting a full review post on the kayak soon! But until then, below are some of the really cool shots I captured over the last few weeks of us testing out different waters, and set ups.
