Recreational angler having fishing extensively throughout the world.
Supporter of conservation efforts and the need for protection of our resources. I feel that in addition to fishing, there is a need to give back to the sport by giving support and becoming involved with conservation organizations on the local, state and federal levels.
“Catching fish should just be our reward for time spent protecting them”.
