Hi everyone! My name is Damian Barry. I started kayaking here in New Zealand when I was 14 with the school’s outdoor pursuits club mostly paddling in the sea but did some whitewater paddling. Then I started playing canoe Polo up until I was 20. I got into kayak fishing around four and a half years ago, all of my fishing is saltwater fishing I’ve met some great guys through the local kayak fishing forum. Since getting into kayak fishing the bug has really bitten and have got into sea kayaking as well as dabbling in a bit of whitewater. I also do a bit of volunteer work for legasea which is a advocacy group for the recreational sector run by the new Zealand sport fishing council.
