Justin A. Hausner
Developing NYKBF into what it is today, Justin prides himself on being the head of the largest Kayak Fishing Tournament series in NY state. Justin has been around kayaking for many years. He is a member of national teams, such as Jackson Kayak, Bending Branches, and Savur Outdoors. Justin is always available to answer any questions about the tournament series or just kayak fishing in general.
In his second year as a TD with NYKBF John Tammaro (AKA: JTT) is in charge of membership for 2020, he is also in charge of the AOY standings for the 2020 season.
John is a member of such prostaffs as NuCanoe, and Paula's Donuts.
Returning NYKFB TD, Jackson Kayak Fishing Team, FishUSA field staff and all around gnarly dude. Helping branch out NYKBF into WNYKBF and growing the sport while having a good time. Always down to slay some toothy giants.
Ryan, AKA: SloppyKnots, is the master of behind the scenes, tech-stuff. building and creating all of our live streams, hype videos, and everything in between.
Maybe this season we will get him out in front of the camera.
Matt Ruppert is a 2nd year TD and focuses on our new WNYKBF branch. He has been fishing competitively for his entire life (if you count kids fishing derbies). Matt is a nature enthusiast and outdoorsman of all kinds; you’ll see him setting up camp at a nearby campground during tournament season.
Beau Canzoneri is a 2nd year TD and current NYKBF state champion. Beau started fishing with his grandfather when he was young, now no matter what time of year or place in the country, you can usually find him on the lake. Beau’s hunger for fishing knowledge and his need to compete is never satiated. He is a passionate fisherman who will be the first to give you a tournament card and tell you all about his love for the sport.
