The purpose of having a KBF RALLY is to provide an opportunity for anglers to get together and share their passion for kayak fishing. The idea is to provide a series of events (long term) that will serve as regional get togethers to provide the foundation for grassroots information exchange, rigging clinics and seminars and other opportunities for anglers to share, learn and grow as kayak anglers and ambassadors for the sport. A primary focus of these events will be to foster Youth, Education and Safety information sharing.
