Top 10 Pieces of Gear you Need for your Next Boat Trip

There is nothing quite so refreshing as being out on the water on a cool morning in early spring, watching the river run by you as the quick current from the recent snowmelt runoff pushes you effortlessly through the water. Around one bend you come across a doe and her newborn fawn sipping from the streambank and they don´t notice you until you have almost come upon them.
