So you have tried fishing from the bank or a motorboat but want to get closer and be quieter? Dreamed of targeting a fall Chinook or a behemoth sturgeon from the comfort and flexibility of a kayak, but are not ready to jump into the deep end? Come get your line wet Next Adventure, with support from Next Adventure's Hobie Fishing team and Next Adventure Fishing Guides and Instructors. So much knowledge!
The First Cast program gets you on the water with a guide and instructor to demo Hobie Fishing Kayaks while targeting one of the various fisheries legendary to the Pacific Northwest.
This is NOT a guided trip. The First Cast program gets you on the water with a guide and instructor to demo Hobie Fishing Kayaks. But since we are already out there, we might as well drop a line in! Our guides will consult and give suggestions on what equipment to bring along, depending on what's biting. If you do not happen to have a rod, we will have a limited selection of gear available to demo.
Your experience will introduce boat features, an education on basic rigging, kayak fishing tactics, and of course, the opportunity to fish! (Let's just hope they are biting!) We promise, you'll be hooked. Better yet, if you buy a 2018 Hobie within ONE WEEK of your First Cast, we will knock a $100 off your boat! That means you get a free class and a great deal! Just to ice the cake, we will also give you 10% off all your accessories, and rig your boat for free. It's our gift to you to get you fishing right!
