Heliconia Press announces the launch of Kayak Fishing Tales—a free online kayak fishing video magazine (www.kayakfishingtales.com). Kayak Fishing Tales was developed during the production of Heliconia's upcoming adventure film, ExOfficio presents Kayak Fishing: Game On.

“After shooting the first few segments of the Kayak Fishing: Game On film, we realized we were capturing more great content than we could ever use in a single movie”, explains Producer, Ken Whiting. “And so we launched Kayak Fishing Tales as a free service, with the idea that it will get more people excited about and involved with the sport.”

Kayak Fishing Tales uses video articles presented in a stunning digital magazine format to deliver great kayak fishing tips, and to tell the stories of the amazing people they've met and places they've visited during their travels. It is a format that Heliconia believes represents a real step in the evolution of traditional media. “The internet has had media like broadcast TV, home video and blogs on a collision course,” says Ken Whiting. “This type of online video magazine melds key elements of those media into a dynamic product that offers both visitors and partners unrivaled value.”

The first issue of Kayak Fishing Tales is now available at www.kayakfishingtales.com. Subsequent issues will release every two months.
