New Mexico Kayak Instruction and The Reel Life in Santa Fe have partnered to offer you the first Kayak Fishing clinic in New Mexcio.

In this free 2hr clinic, you'll learn about the three most popular types of fishing kayaks, the gear you'll need and what works best for year-around kayak fishing in New Mexico.

In the following optional 4hr Intro to Kayak Fishing Pool Lesson and Kayak Demo, you'll learn 5 essential deepwater rescues and 9 key strokes to move your boat effortlessly in any direction.  You'll also have the opportunity to demo 9 different fishing kayaks, including the popular Wilderness Systems Tarpon 140, Native Watercraft Ultimate 12 & 14, and the Liquid Logic Remix XP-9 and XP-10!

I was excited to take the pool class, even though a few friends ridiculed taking a kayak class ("What's so hard about kayaking?!").  The whitewater clinic presented challenges I was not expecting (physically, mentally or emotionally), and it heightened my awareness of the river, the sport, challenges and myself.  It has taken me a week to process this experience, and I welcome the time it will take to continue to process both the instruction and personal learned experience. This course was positively intense!
