I have always loved to fish. I used to drive to the lake and sit and wait just to see if anyone needed a partner in the tournaments often times I would get picked up. I got the opportunity through guide Mike Gold who set me up to start working with Eric’s elite guide service. Gold helped me become a guide and it changed my life for the better. It’s not about what you know it’s about who you know .
