Imagine this: You're paddling a kayak six miles off the Florida coast when a sailfish bigger than you peels off with the fishing line at your rear. This is David Gauzens' day-to-day. A Miami native, Gauzens knows glitz—but he shuns it as part of a small, gritty band of kayak fishermen who forsake flashy boats for utilitarian pieces of plastic to pursue their passion. High seas, storms and even capsizing can’t deter him from exhausting encounters with prehistoric fish—and he learns in the process just how little he needs to be content.
