Sunday, January 12th, 2014 - 10am until 2pm
Mountain men used to come out of the mountains at the end of the season to sell their furs, socialize, trade goods and tell stories at the Rendezvous. Kayak anglers might not have furs to sell, but they know how to eat, trade, and tell stories!
This will be the 2nd year for the ARC Kayak Fishing Rendezvous at ARC-Hampton. The first year was a blast with around 50 people showing up. You can see photos from that day by clicking here. This year is shaping up nicely as well. Stay tuned for event details throughout the week. Here is a list of what is happening so far.
