HOW DID YOU GET STARTED?
Even though my dad isn’t a fisherman, I grew up obsessed with fishing. Read every magazine/ book and watched every show I could. Grew up idolizing guys like Jose, Flip and Dahlberg. Took a guided trip to the Ten Thousand Islands when I was 15 and decided from that day on I would become a guide and have my own fishing show on TV one day.
