KOKATAT Kayak Fishing TEAM MEMBER | Kayak Fishing

Brad Hole

Age: 48 years old

"Many men go fishing all of their lives without knowing that it is not fish they are after." ~ Henry David Thoreau

If someone had told Brad Hole 20 years ago that he would be chasing down fish in a kayak he would have laughed off the notion. Given the choice, he would rather hunt down fish in his Hobie Pro Angler than a power boat. Kayaks today are more stable, comfortable and a great way to target a variety of fish species. Wearing the right Kokatat immersion gear and PFD is one thing that never gets compromised.

While Brad finds comfort and solitude trolling for trout around the vast bodies of water in the Pacific Northwest, pursuing a bucket list of different species only feeds his passion for the sport. Whether that’s hunting down trophy Pacific Halibut, Tiger Muskie, Lake Trout and Burbot or pitching jigs to palm sized Crappie - he will never complain of having a bad day on the water.

When Brad is not on the water you can find him tending to his urban bee hives or foraging for seasonal wild mushrooms in the mountains around Seattle. We hope you will follow him on his journey.
