Earlier this year I had the most awesome time bowfishing from the Coosa, Big Rig and Kilroy. Each one of these had their own strengths for bowfishing and it made for some really great trips. The Coosa handled the moving water that was loaded with spawning gar and carp. It allowed me to maneuver in
Between school, church, and not too good of weather, I have not been able to get out in the kayak like I have wanted to. Today was the first day I have had the time or the weather to get out, and I decided to try paddling my dad’s Kilroy. I was very surprised by

Our home river, the Chattahoochee, near Columbus Georgia is undergoing a whitewater transformation right now. When it is done there will be plenty of
This is a simple way to make a quick fly rod holder for the Coosa and Cuda. Not my idea, but I saw it when looking for plans for a multi rod rack for the Cuda and thought it would work for our boats. I quickly saw how handy and effective they are and
My dad and I took our Coosa’s out twice last week. The place we fished has a spot that is full of shoals. I was surprised at how shallow the Coosa could actually go through those rocks. I could take the Coosa through the small gaps with shallow water that no power boat could hope
