The 2022 Realtree Fishing KBF Trail Series Championship presented by Dee Zee

In 2021, the Trail Series Championship was the event that vaulted Utah’s Cody Henley into the national kayak fishing spotlight. After qualifying for the Dee Zee KBF The TEN at the Trail Series championship, Henley went on to win The TEN.

In 2021, Guillermo Gonzalez narrowly defeated Cody Milton in an epic exchange of big bass limits. Milton would win Angler of the Year based on points, but Gonzalez would win the Trail Series championship. On the next day, that win catapulted him to a day 3 victory at the National Championship.

In short, for both Henley and Gonzalez, the KBF Trail Series Championship was the first step toward other victories in major events.

Henley enters the 2022 Trail Series Championship round with the most points at the top of the Ledlenser KBF Trail Series leaderboard . He is joined by established names like Cody Milton and Josh Stewart, and also by anglers who, like Henley, represent a young generation emerging in the sport. Nick Audi and Caymen Rasmussen made noise in the Realtree Fishing KBF Trail Series in 2022, and now they find themselves in the top 10 in the points race with a chance at big paydays and winning a ticket to The TEN house.
