In May, we ran a Fishing Adventure Social Photo Contest and the winners were Kyle and Kendra Hopkins (congrats again you two), and we wanted to share a bit about them as we love our REEL Lifestyle Fishing Families!
WHO ARE THEY?
Kyle is from Myrtle Creek, OR and Kendra is from Grants Pass, OR. Kyle is on his way to becoming a certified Journeyman Millwright, and Kendra works for a Veterinarian Clinic. Together they have an almost 3 year old daughter, Kinley, and are soon going to have a little boy join the family in late Summer 2017!
WHAT REEL LIFESTYLE DO THEY CHOOSE?
They both enjoy hunting and fishing whenever they get a chance, and the little ones will always be a part of their trips (even the little one soon to come!) Fishing is more than a hobby to them, it's their network of family and friends, it's their "date night", it's their classroom, and it also keeps the two of them together adventurous. They're always looking to learn a new knot, a different body of water, or to fight a fish we've only seen on their fave fishing shows.
The REEL Lifestyle has helped them develop an even stronger network for their family. Rod, the other co-founder of REEL Lifestyle, has gone above and beyond to invite Kendra & Kyle with open arms to this awesome REEL Lifestyle Tribe!
"We're proud to be a part of the REEL Lifestyle, and each time we go out fishing a stranger asks for us to take a picture of him and his big catch with our REEL hats on! I used to feel a tad intimidated being the only lady on the water, then I was the only lady with a baby on her back fishing, but now I feel confident with our REEL Lifestyle gear! Our children get to wear the beanies and hats, too! We have grumpy ol' men approach us and actually love seeing us pass down the traditions,and ask us about REEL Lifestyle. We are grateful to be able to fish and learn each chance we get!"
