Drew grew up knee deep in the streams of central PA - building dams, corralling crayfish, and catching trout. That sense of adventure never quit and he grew into a full blown river rat, spending many days wading and floating local rivers and creeks in search of giant bass. Since then, he has spent time living in the Pacific Northwest, Southwest, and Southeastern U.S., honing his skills along the way. Although mainly known as a bass fisherman, he loves to chase anything that swims. In 2011, while living in central North Carolina, he turned his passion for teaching others into a job, becoming a part-time kayak fishing guide with Froggy Waters Outdoors. He now resides in western Massachusetts where he is learning the regional waterways and helping to grow kayak fishing in New England. In addition to Bending Branches, Drew’s current affiliations and sponsors include Wilderness Systems Fishing Kayaks, Carolina Custom Rods, Smith Optics, Columbia Sportswear and Pure Fishing Inc.
