I have lived in Albany since 2002 and know the community and the local waterways well. My wife has lived in Albany since 1965 and has had a long familial connection with the local salmon fishing industry. We are both committed to our region and would not think to live anywhere else. I live to fish and I would like the opportunity to ‘fish to live.’ To that end, my wife and I have started a kayak tour and charter company called the ‘Great Southern Discovery’. We use Native Watercraft Mariner 12.5 Multisport kayaks exclusively, as we find these are best for our waterways, which vary from inland to offshore. We are passionate about our NW’s and totally convinced of their virtues.
