    Kayaking 340 Miles of the Sacramento River - Redding to SF

    Cyril Derreumqux is an endurance athlete and a world-record-holding beast. 

    He recently kayaked the entire Sacramento River from Redding to San Francisco's Golden Gate Bridge. Listen in as he tells us how he did it, and what he saw along the way. 

    Also - in the summer of 2016 he embarked upon his biggest challenge to date when he successfully rowed across the Mid-Pacific Ocean from California to Hawaii, as part of a 4-man crew, in an expedition of just under 40 days, earning him and his teammates a Guinness World Record for the fastest crossing of that distance.

    Being a Black Man in Fly Fishing - Alvin Dedeaux

    Being a Black Man in Fly Fishing - Alvin Dedeaux

    On June 2nd, 2020 Alvin Dedeaux posted a video on his Instagram feed that made us think about racism in America and more specifically, what it's like to be a black man in our sport.

    In this episode, we have what is perhaps the most uncomfortable conversation we've had to date on a topic that is red-hot across the nation. We as hosts muddle through as best we can. It is not the conversation we wanted to have, but we felt we must have.

    Also - Corrine Doctor (RepYourWater) shares what happened after they posted the "black square" on their Instagram account and how their brand chose to deal with it.
