Born in Forty McCellan US Army Base Alabama 1979, first bass caught 1981 Fort Smith Arkansas. NW multi species fisherman who has built over 25,000 fishing rod blanks and 10,000 bow silencers for Bowtech by hand, currently with EDGE Rods with Gary Loomis in Woodland WA. Social Media Manager for EDGE Rods, North Fork Composites. NW Sportsman Magazine Contributor and media contributor for Tuf-Line, Dry Creek Outfitters Idaho, Pradco, Simms Fishing and Vibe Kayaks. On Team @RelentlessAngling Washington. Fishing Educational Instructor for @GetHookedFoundation and Oregon State Fish & Wildlife. I do it all from carp to albacore, multi species fishing has made me a better fisherman in general as techniques learned have intertwined with each other making me better in every area but my focus is bass fishing largemouth/smallmouth. Living in Portland gives me unlimited untouched access to spots taken for granted by NW fisherman who focus on salmon/steelhead runs. Within 4 hours of every direction of Portland OR you can get to snow covered mountains and streams, deserts, the ocean, and over 3000 bodies of fishable water. This diversity in regions also allows me to provide unique product/fishing photography and video which I enjoy doing just as much as fishing.
