I have had a passion for fishing since I was a kid. Love sharing the experience of catching fish with others and getting to know people. consider letting me share that passion with you! Originally from the Arizona desert, I developed the love of water there. Moved to Tennessee in 2008 and have really enjoyed learning our magnificent fisheries!
