With the expansion of my family, an increasingly demanding schedule at home, and conflicting schedules, it has become difficult to find the time to fish with my normal fishing buddies.  In fact, I have fished solo the past few times I have been out.

Fishing solo is not my ideal way of fishing as the air and water temps have slowly fallen.  There is inherent danger to fishing solo in the colder months, however, there is also an added reward when you pattern fish using your own knowledge and experience.

The fish I have caught lately have been on a very specific pattern in a very specific area.  This area has been a challenge to reach.  It requires a 3 mile paddle upriver.  The paddle includes a small amount of flat water developing into ever increasing current the further up river I paddle.  

The Bending Branches Angler Pro has logged many miles the past couple weeks.  The overall weight of the Angler Pro has been it’s best feature.  The 3 mile paddle up river is not the most grueling part, it’s the last 2 miles in flat water that really challenges me.  Thanks to the light weight, I can get through it after a long day of fishing. While tired at the end of the day; I am not completely wiped out due to a heavy and inefficient paddle.  

This Thanksgiving season I am thankful for my family, friends, and a loving God.  I am also very thankful for the Bending Branches Angler Pro that gets me where I need to go.  This is my go to paddle for every circumstance.
