Hi, I’m Mike McGrath, CEO and founder of Up-A-Creek Paddle Company.
I make handmade, artisan canoe paddles that are the perfect decorator item for vacation homes, evoking nostalgic memories of simpler times.
I grew up in the Finger Lakes area of central New York, surrounded by crystal clear waters and towering forests. My earliest memories were paddling a canoe on Skaneateles Lake and camping in the Adirondacks. My love for the outdoors started early.
