Part one is a classroom style presentation of kayak fishing basics. This can be can be done at a lake or as a Zoom meeting if you like. It's not a requirement to meetup and fish to learn kayak fishing basics, a Zoom presentation option is open to anyone in Minnesota or western Wisconsin and allows you to learn and ask questions without having to travel to the Twin Cities metro MN area. It's also an option if you just want to learn about basic kayak fishing topics without getting on the water.
