Richie Moschella

Richie’s passion for the sport started in the early nineties. His Grandmother bought him a fishing rod and you can say that the rest is history. He was hooked at first bass! He subscribed to Bassmaster Magazine and watched many fishing shows on TV such as Fishing With Roland Martin, Quest for Adventure, and Bassmasters. Throughout school, his desire to fish and educate the public about the sport got a huge boost when he joined the Audio Video Club. He started to produce fishing shows that broadcasted on Public Access TV! He was even pictured in the yearbook reading Roland Martin’s “101 Ways to Catch Bass.” Fishing was his passion and being a professional angler was his goal! Once out of school he fished with as many different anglers he could and sharpened his skills as an angler. In 2009 he reconnected with an old fishing friend and launched The Reel Deal Fishing Show. The show was a hit on YouTube and also broadcasted on Public Access TV in North New Jersey. With views increasing daily and the public not getting enough of the Reel Deal, Richie took the show on the road. Through lectures, seminars, and other public engagements, Richie brings his years of experience on the water to you. He takes great pride in getting people hooked on the sport and making them better anglers on the water. Today Richie works with many great sponsors that have helped him live his dream of being a professional angler. He has fished with some amazing anglers and interviewed the best pros on the water. Skeet Reese, Shaw Grigsby, Mike Iaconelli, Guy Eaker, Bill Decoteau, and Darla Bardelli are just a few of the professionals that Richie has fished with or interviewed! Richie has been featured in Bass Angler Magazine, Bass Times, and also appeared on “Outdoors This Week” radio show with Darla Bardelli. Through all forms of media, Richie is living the dream he had so many years ago. He is The Reel Deal!
