The start of my love affair with fish can be attributed to my dad. He took me fishing out on our old Carolina skiff as soon as I was big enough to fit in a life jacket. I learned how to throw a cast net for bait, how to rig up a rod, and the best creeks to catch reds.
When I learned how to scuba dive, my obsession really took off as I discovered the incredible spectrum of fish, in all shapes and colors, that could be found on a reef.
Later on in life I picked up a fly rod, which absolutely changed the way I experienced fishing. The love of this sport has taken me on travels to unique places around the world just to target certain species.
