Background
I have been fishing since I was a small boy with my Dad. I remember every Saturday waking up to go wade fishing with my Dad or watching Flip Pallet on his TV show Walkers Cay Chronicles. Ever since then I have wanted to be a fishing guide. I love sharing my knowledge of fishing with others and seeing the big smile on their face when they reel in a big one.
