LAWAI`A | A Family Fishing Fable

“You give a kid a fish you feed his family. You teach a kid to fish and you can feed him for a lifetime”

Hawaii means many things to many people. For Nick Wakida, his homeland of Maui is tied to community and that community is part of a larger family. Nick doesn’t have the big boats and expensive gear to do the legendary deep sea fishing the islands are known for, but his can-do attitude, and a sea kayak, enables him to fish the waters. Fishing for Nick is about more than reeling in a big one. It’s about tapping into the cultural and spiritual history, and sharing his bounty with family and community.
