“‘I had a flats boat, and even though it had a very shallow draft, I couldn’t get it back to where the redfish were. They’d be so shallow you could see their backs. You couldn’t wade because even though the water was shallow, if you got out you’d sink to your armpits in mud. So I started using a kayak.'” Jimbo Meador, former guide and now vice president of Legacy Paddlesports, the North Carolina company that makes the Native kayak we reviewed at the Fly Fishing Retailer Show in August.
