Scouting Trips

What does it take to create some of the best fishing experiences available for kayak anglers and adventure anglers alike? Fish Village has to live the experience before we can offer it to our customers. We call these experiences scouting trips.

Sometimes we know exactly what we are going to be doing while others (cough) Australia 2019 we just sort of winged it. However we do it… we cover it with photo, video and now blogging.

What defines us isn’t the logo on our back, the hat we are wearing, or the sweatshirt we are sporting… nope. It is our heart that defines us and the last two days of fishing on this trip proved that!
