A South Carolina native who lives in “Wild And Wonderful” West Virginia. Brad’s passion for fishing (particularly fly fishing) grew from his love of paddling that began on the rivers of the Southeast over 25 years ago. Growing up, he developed a deep respect for the water through rafting, canoeing, and kayaking and relocated to Fayetteville W.V. to work as a River Guide and live in the New River Gorge. For Brad, fishing has been the greatest tool of exploration on the waterways that surround him and he’s quick to share that with the people he meets. Whether he’s floating the New and Gauley rivers or paddling across a local lake he is always in search of the next kayak fishing adventure. Brad currently works in the outdoor industry as a Sales Rep. for Native Watercraft in WV and VA, where you can find him attending demos and kayak fishing tournaments regularly. Brad has never met a stranger, he’s quick to call you friend, and when he says “Hey man, let’s go fishing”…. he means it!
