Mark has been with us from the beginning...possibly my very first customer before the SlipStream was even on the market. He has been an avid supporter of ours and is a natural fit for the Ambassador Program.

“Whether I am out locally or in some remote location, I need to rely on and have confidence in the products I use, and that’s why I chose EasyMount for my setup”. Jay Brown
JAMIE BROAD- AMBASSADOR
Like many of us Jamie began fishing at an early age, starting with trips to the lake with his great grandmother. From those cane pole fishing trips sitting on a 5gallon bucket came a love of fishing that he is passing down to his kids.
When I asked Jamie how he got started in kayak fishing he said, “I bought my first kayak in 2012 for my son and I to have some fun. Its probably been the best purchase I’ve ever made.”
In 2017 he fished his kayak bass tournament. Two years later he holds multiple Angler of the Year Awards and has competed in more than 80 tournaments.
