The Hudson River Fisherman’s Association (HRFA) is offering a Wavewalk 500 F2 and W paddle as first prize in its annual Hudson River Striped Bass Derby that will take place on April 26 – 27, 2014.
-“This fishing tournament attracts striper anglers from as far as North Carolina” Says Fred Rung, HRFA Vice president.
The second prize in this tournament is $500 in cash, and the third prize is $250.

This striper fishing tournament has been taking place for many years, and it is open to all anglers, and not necessarily just to kayak anglers.
This is one of the primary reasons that prompted Wavewalk to donate a W kayak and paddle to serve as first prize in it. The idea is to show that the W500 is more than a fishing kayak, and it can be appreciated by anglers who fish out of various motorboats, and not just out of kayaks, even in big northern rivers such as the Hudson.
