Barna has been fishing his entire life. Fishing has been his favourite activity since a very young age. So much so, that he decided to turn his passion into a business and start BAER Fishing Adventures.
Barna’s home waters are Long Point Bay of Lake Erie, but guides tours on all water bodies offered by BAER Fishing Adventures in Ontario.
Barna is a lover of contact sports such as Hockey, Lacrosse, Rugby, Football and more, but admits to being a horrible sports fan. This is because he spends too much time on the water.
Barna enjoys learning new tactics and fishing new bodies of water as much as possible.

Although big water is exciting for Scott, he loves fishing rivers, especially the Grand.

Scott loves to fish with others because quality time on the water is a great way to learn the joys of catching and releasing.

Costa Rica teamThe guiding team in Costa Rica is a very strong team dedicated to enjoying nature as much as possible. They love to show people from all around the world this magic place in the southern peninsula de Nicoya. Their idea of kayak fishing is to find the way to do what they love (fishing) with the most ecological techniques possible. When paddling, people will enjoy wildlife without noisy engines around, this makes kayaking the best way to share this beautiful place with turtles, birds and fish.
