Who We Are

In 2006 John and Brad Myers joined together as a father/son team to pursue a vision of owning a business together that would provide a element of outdoor entertainment that could involve virtually every age while providing and including educational opportunities on the waters of Kentucky and surrounding states.

The fishing and boating industry was a natural choice since both were avid outdoorsmen involved in the fishing and hunting industry. Kayaking has become one of the fastest growing water sports in the U.S. and was a natural fit with the Kentucky streams and rivers..
