Comments: Originally from Texas, I have been in Kansas for 18 years. I have been kayak fishing for 3 years and am a Pro Staff member for a local Malibu dealer in Kansas. We have a kayak fishing team, Team TexKan. Most of the opportunities to fish are in the Texas area. Kayak fishing is relatively unknown in Kansas. I try and introduce as many folks as possible to this wonderful sport. You have a really neat web site and I appreciate all that you do for the sport. Please add me to your wonderful web site so the Sunflower State can get on the kayak fishing radar.
