David Borries

Member since October 2015 Jacksonville, United States
Background
David's passion for fishing was ignited when he learned to fish along the Mississippi Gulf Coast as a young boy, fishing with his father in a small wooden row boat. He has come a long way since that rowboat, and has been guiding in northeast Florida for over 20 years now. He writes for the Coastal Angler Magazine and has been featured in Florida Sportsman, the Florida Times-Union, and Trailer Boats Magazine, so you know you are in safe hands with him!
