Speaker: Chris Tryon -- Co-Owner of Hook Line & Paddle, Wilmington

Bio from Chris:  "Our Shop is the premier location on the coast for Fishing Kayaks and Kayak Fishing Accessories. I have been a Professionally Endorsed Guide for Native Watercraft since 2004. Other Endorsements are from Accent Paddles and a Paddle Sports Ambassador or NRS. I have been fly fishing for over twenty years. My first experiences with fly fishing was growing up in New England for Trout. Once I moved to the Carolina Coast I quickly made the switch to salt water fly fishing. My passion is fly fishing from kayaks -- there is no other way in my opinion to get that close to fish with a fly rod. My one rule I live by is a safe day on the water leads to more days on the water."


  • Over View of kayak safety.
  • Wind and tide for members that may want to come to the coast and fish.

  • Flies to use on the coast and which flies to target Red Fish Flounder, Trout, Blue Fish and Spanish.
  • Kayaks that are designed to fly fish out of and how they work
  • Casting while standing in a kayak.
  • On water Demonstration
  • Allow members to demo the kayaks to see how they feel in the water.
