About this pro

My experience on 3 continents in competitions as well as local competitions has helped me to teach anglers for 8 years and get a better understanding of getting them quickly successful using a sound foundation of fishing tactics which are easy for all. I know there aren't any anglers in my area who have been to a World Championships for team U.S.A. and not many in the entire country who have fished in 3 World Championships. I also use the best possible methods for an angler to have a great deal of success near home - which translates to cheap outdoor activities, increased learning opportunities and better anglers! No matter the topic- I really love getting other anglers successful. All levels of anglers who are open to new tactics can share in the magic of catching a lot of fish and big fish near home. I love seeing people excited for catching any fish and watching their confidence grow. Working with kids (& adults) - it is great to see them succeeding and having a great time fishing, even on our first lesson.
