Starting for the 2012 model season on boats shipping in August 2011 and on, Wilderness Systems Angler package kayaks will include the Silent Traction System. This innovative system allows you to customize your kayak for form and function, but you want to make sure you do a nice job.
Our friends over at Hook1 posted a great how-to on their blog if you're looking for more details and step-by-step instructions beyond what is found in the owner's manual.

Great early review of the all-new 2012 Wilderness Systems Ride 135 by Palmetto Kayak Fishing.
The seating system coupled with the floor layout is genius. In other kayaks I have owned, I run into a common problem - there never seems to be enough leg room for me from the seat to the foot pegs. I have historically had to modify the design of the foot pegs to make my legs more comfortable, but the Ride’s configuration worked perfectly right out of the… Continue

We were extremely proud to receive this certificate of appreciation from Georgia Kayak Fishing Foundation (GKFF) presented to Confluence (Wilderness Systems' parent company) for our support of their Warrior Transition program.
The honor is ours and our support of the Warrior Transition Battalion at Fort Benning, GA is our way of showing appreciation for the dedicated service and sacrifice of our armed forces. We are thankful for the opportunity to participate in such an important… Continue

Check out this guy's pretty disturbing forum post on a smash up where the car was completely obliterated. It was carrying two Wilderness Systems Tarpons....they fare quite a bit better than the car to say the least.

An exciting bit of news from the broad world of fishing, the sport of kayak fishing gets a big boost this month in the June 2010 Bassmaster issue. The "Where No Boat Has Gone Before" story inside details why we're entering the "golden age" of small craft.
And we're even more excited that the Wilderness Systems Commander 120 was featured as the face of kayak fishing, featured both on the cover and on the main story page header. (sorry it's not signing autographs at this… Continue

Embedding videos into your blog post is simple, but is a little odd
using this system. Here is the information below to help you integrate
your videos directly into a blog post, rather than simply linking them.
1) Get all the text in your new blog post before putting the videos in.
You can add all the text, formatting, and images necessary.
2) Find the place(s) that you want your embedded video(s) to go.
3) Next, copy the… Continue

Here is how I set up my no-drill anchor trolley. I use this system because it is quick, easy, inexpensive and doesn't make any permanent modifications to the kayak. This set up can be easily removed and used on another kayak as well.
You start by creating two loops with the pulleys. This can be done by sewing the line or using hog (cage) rings.
I prefer to sew the loop. Install a piece of heat shrink before sewing to cover… Continue

We often taught stealth as the primary advantage of the kayak. Here is my modification to take it to the next level.
I found this product from Stewart Products Sure Step and it immediately got my attention as a way to make the kayak more "quiet". We often talk about the stealth of kayaks as a major advantage but overlook how load they… Continue

Unofficial Wilderness Systems Pro member Mo' Bass decided not to stay inside over the icy weather this past weekend. Rather than ice fishing, he took the next obvious alternative - Street snow kneeboarding from the back of a pickup truck.
Wilderness does not condone this particular activity, but does give Mr. Bass a thumbs up for considering safety gear. We hope he's ok based on the… Continue
