Saturday Night Movie: Waterwalker

Bill Mason is a paddling legend. If you just so happen to be from Canada or way up north in the States you may have heard of him. He was a standard outdoor figure on Canada's public broadcasting. He produced a number of short films and worked on a number of television shows bringing the joys of paddling to many. Waterwalker is one of his finest films and has been made available for free. This is a classic treasure. Canoeists will surely enjoy or remember this film. Enjoy the paddling and even, wait for it, the pallet knife painting.

Equipment Failure
