Rob DeVore

Founding partner of Yaktastic Adventures, Rob is an award-winning creator of outdoor films. 
Exposed to the outdoors at an early age, earliest memories include camping and fishing  -  from landing bass lurking in the weathered barge canals of south-central Ohio to ice fishing for perch in the Finger Lakes to salmon fishing the St Lawrence River and smelting in upstate New York - fishing and the outdoors have been a constant companion.
Battle-hardened by over-exposure to production lights, computer monitors, LED screens and looking at life via little camera eyepiece viewfinders, Rob strives to make the very best outdoor films and soundtracks. Traveling the country chasing, capturing, and recounting the stories of fish and folk, Rob has never been a threat to be crowned Best Angler in the World. Instead, he is most comfortable behind the camera converting memories and footage of aquatic adventures into cinematically solid stories with a voice unique to the kayak angling community.
Gritty, experienced and able to function in any environment on the planet (that you can afford to send him to), Rob is always ready to tell the next story... as long as there's good light and top-quality coffee involved.
