I was born and raised in the Ozark Mountains of southwest Missouri where I spent a majority of my time hunting and fishing with my dad. Hunting was my dad’s passion so naturally that was also mine at first. However the more I fished the more I fell in love with the fight and pursuit of fishing until it became one of my greatest passions. I spent many years fishing out of canoes until discovering kayaks around 13 years ago. I enjoy all types of fishing, but I consider myself a “River Rat” and spend a majority of my time on the abundance of beautiful rivers and creeks we have here in the Ozarks.
One of my greatest joys came when I was finally able to talk my wife into kayak fishing a few years ago and she fell in love with it. I realized then how much I enjoyed introducing people to the world of kayak fishing. For me kayak fishing isn’t simply a hobby, it’s where I can wind down and relax, hang out with my friends, be alone, enjoy nature, spend time with God, no it’s more than a hobby; it’s a way of life.
