Goose Attack Video + Viral = Jay Leno

Goose Attack!

Since January 26, the kayak community has been buzzing about the viral video with kayak fishing pro Drew Gregory getting attacked by a goose. It’s really funny and I’m 100% positive that I would have reacted in the same way if I was in the same situation.

Since the video was posted it has gone viral outside the paddling community with over a 100,000 views on YouTube. Somehow the link was passed along to the producers of the Jay Leno Show and it’s scheduled to be highlighted tonight (February 5th).

The popularly of kayak fishing over the past 2-3 years has been growing at a tremendous rate and some feel that it won’t take much for it to become a common method of fishing (compared to using a powerboat). Could this be the perfect exposure that kayak fishing needs to go mainstream? I hope so.
