Fishing kayak on a lake, in winter, with snow in the background - Oregon
"This picture was taken by Scott Floyd at Smith Reservoir in the West Central Cascade Mountains of Oregon"

"I like my Wavewalk a lot" Andrew says
-"I have never flipped it. I find it very stable to fish from.  I had a close call on my first river trip..I was not used to the boat yet and I caught a cross current ..I thought I was going to flip for sure..But when the boat reached a point it righted its self..I learned a lot about it on that trip.."

Andrew's W kayak beached

"...I do love the w-kayak."


Andrew recently achieved fame among local fishermen (read article).


Andrew's "other boat" is a
Mokai - a powerful and fast motorized kayak.
A very cool boat.



Andrew fishes and shoots great photos all year long, and his favorite online places to hang out are
www.OregonFishingForum.com
and www.WestFly.com

Andrew has a blog of his own, where he posts his amazing photos, and a new website, where he shows more of his photographic work.

Andrew's fishing kayak
"That's my Wavewalk..A great and stable twin hull kayak."

Andrew's kayak cockpit cover
Andrew created this ingenious cockpit cover that's attached to the spray deflector with Velcro.  It's very useful for camping trips.

The cockpit cover can be turned into a half-skirt that helps keeping Andrew cozy and warm when temperatures drop and the wind is blowing.

"I'm glad that those ideas are helping you and your customers out...I guess it's a little pay back for you creating such a great boat"

Andrew can take a lot of gear with him on his long fishing trips, and this is where he keeps some of it
