Fishing has been my entire life ever since I can remember. It's how my family spends most of its time together, and because of this, I was taught at a very young age. For generations, my family has been passionate about saltwater and freshwater fishing. So much so, that I even have close family members who have invented and patented various types of products specifically for catching fish! I have made fishing a way of life, and I am proud to be able to share that with others.
