Joe Tilley

Joe Tilley is a Newfoundlander who relocated to New Brunswick, Canada in 2001.   After growing up fishing for brook trout with his Dad in the woods of Newfoundland, Joe discovered a whole new world of fishing after buying a kayak... for his wife!    Living next door to the Bay of Fundy, the Saint John and the Kennebacasis River systems, Joe has immeadiate access to a very wide variety of both fresh and salt water fish right in his back yard.    So naturally, Joe outfitted his "wife's" kayak with several rod holders, and an anchor mount and since then has been difficult to find around the house!   

In the Spring of 2014 Joe has finally bite the bullet and landed his own dream fishing kayak... the new Old Town Predator 13!

Today Joe is very active in the kayak angling community in Eastern Canada.   In addition to maintaining a kayak angling blog, he has recently created the Greater Saint John Kayak Angler group, and is the lead organizer for both of the premiere kayak/canoe fishing tournaments in Eastern Canada.

Joe has picked up pro-staff / sponsorships from several angling oriented companies in addition to his affiliation with Johnson's Outdoor Adventures including Denali Rods, Lyman Lures, Owner Hooks, and Aquateko, and Eco Pro Tungsten.  

In 2015, Joe has been asked to run a booth at the New Brunswick Outdoorsmen Trade Show & Convention, a 3 day event that will draw thousands of avid anglers, many of whom have not been exposed to kayak fishing.   This will be a great opportunity to promote not only kayak fishing in NB, but also the grow the local kayak angling community and promote all the great companies like those in the Johnson Outdoor Adventure family who make this sport possible!

If not at home with his family or working his day job as a Software Enginer, you will likely find Joe will be out on the water, sometimes with his boys in his Old Town Canoe or Predator kayak, searching for the next big or interesting catch!
