Favorite Book/Movie Bible (book). "Action or comedy, I watch it all, from Star Wars to Step Brothers."
Non-Angling Hero My dad. "His work ethic and how he treats people. If I become half of the man my dad is I will be alright."
When Not Fishing Watching sports and I fun-fish Guntersville and around the house a lot.
Why He Fishes "It's just who I am. I believe God meant for me to do this for a living. I love the competition, camaraderie and just trying to figure them out."
