Quiet Water Symposium headed for MSU

   If you are considering a summer spent paddling either in a canoe or kayak you may want to attend the Quiet Water Symposium at Michigan State University this Saturday, 9a.m.-5p.m. It's located in one of the agriculture buildings on campus on Farm Lane. Great directions and other information may be found at
   Besides paddle sports there may be information on hiking, biking or other non-motorized activities. You'll see first-hand perfectly crafted canoes and paddles all built by hand.
   Riverside Kayak Connection will have booth space devoted to touring and fishing kayaks along with related equipment.
   Chris LeMessurier and I will be near RKC in our own area representing Kayak Fish the Great Lakes. That's a web site for those interested in fishing from a kayak. Visit for a look.
   We'll have several kayaks on display rigged for fishing and available to discuss fishing from kayaks, answer questions about equipment, and provide any assistance or advice to anyone interested in learning more about this growing sport.
   Last year we had a great response. Our booth was packed at times with potential kayak anglers, but most of the day found a steady stream of foot traffic in to see what was up with these boats sitting on racks, adorned with fishing rods and other related equipment.
   See you in Lansing!
