Sorry to all the whitewater folks, but the fishing is hitting and this edition is all kayak angling. The Virginia kayak fishing community has been on fire after a sluggish winter spell of snow and wind. So tune in, read up and get psyched. This is the Friday's Finds, where we seek to highlight some of the paddlers who call Virginia home. PaddleVa is about all of us. While some of the stuff shared in these posts will come from outside our waters, Virginia will always be the primary focus.
