About Our Founder
RiverBassin.com was founded by Pro Kayak Angler Drew Gregory. Drew is a professional river fishing guide, sportsman and adventurer who has been heavily involved in ongoing development and promotion of the kayak fishing industry for nearly a decade. When Drew isn’t giving seminars, collaborating with kayak manufacturers or working to better the kayak fishing world you’ll find him floating the shoals in rivers all over the United States. Drew has lead fishing expeditions all over the US and even to the Amazon Jungle. You can follow Drew on his adventures here at RiverBassin.com and also at his personal website DrewGregory.com.
RiverBassin.com was designed as an educational resource and community for anyone who enjoys catching bass, of any kind, any way, out of flowing water.
Our goal is that river bass fisherman can have a place where they can post their trip reports, photos, videos, contribute resources and keep up with and make new bassin’ friends. It doesn’t matter if you fish rivers with just your two legs and a fishing pole, or if you hit the water with a kayak, canoe, jon boat or bass boat, this is a place for you. Some may be interested in fishing for largemouth, smallmouth or spotted bass, while others may enjoy the thrill of being towed around by a peacock or striped bass. Fly fisherman and conventional tackle fisherman co-exist here and appreciate what each has to contribute to the art and passion of River Bassin™. The clash of flowing water and catching bass creates a controlled chaos experience that bonds us all. We hope you’ll finally meet someone else who understands the obsession of River Bassin™! Unlike other online communities, this is not just an online place to mingle with like-minded people. It is meant to connect people face to face through fishing trips and community get-togethers. Real lifelong friends are made, memories and laughs are created through this unique network.
We especially enjoy seeing young people get into a sport that gets them outside, exercising, and teaches them positive life lessons. In order to be a catalyst for this we’ll be offering a River Bassin™ 101 Kids Camp each summer (starting in 2010) where they can learn how to paddle a kayak, are taught fishing basics, and most importantly positive life lessons taken from their experiences on the river each day. From an environmental standpoint we are focusing on becoming a strong and powerful voice to speak up for our nations’ rivers and streams when society attempts to neglect them. One way we are doing this is through a unique section on the site where users can report river abuse. The report goes straight to the authorities and river fisherman can truly make a difference through this program.
We’re here working for you so if you have any suggestions or would like to assist us by becoming a head River Basser for a state, please feel free to contact us!
Catch a big one!
