While I lived in NY, I was a licensed outdoor guide for 20+ years. I worked mostly in fly fishing, and introducing SOT freshwater kayak fishing in my area of the Hudson Valley.
I moved to Florida four years ago, and kayak fish primarily salt water on Florida’s West Coast with both fly and spinning gear. I fish local and some regional inshore tournaments, and do a lot of kayak fishing with my twelve-year-old son. We are both active in the Tampa Bay Chapter of Heroes on the Water.
I have been an outdoor writer for 20+ years for U.S. and Australian (Blade) print and online media, and contribute product reviews, fishing reports, and destination pieces to local, regional, and national forums. I am also the Editor of YakAngler.com and a regular participant/contributor on KayakFishingRadio.
