Texas Coast Guru
Favorite Fish: Redfish
Home Water: St. Charles Bay / Aransas Bay
I grew up fishing and duck hunting on the flats and coastal marshes around central Texas. My dad was a Texas Parks and Wildlife ranger in the Rockport area. I was taught from an early age the importance of conservation and how to be a responsible outdoorsman.
My addiction to the fly rod developed in junior high while wade fishing for reds and black drum after school with my older brother. My wife and I recently moved back to Texas from Southern California where I enjoyed surfing and fishing the coast. I work for Diablo Paddlesports, a local kayak manufacturer. In my spare time I guide kayak trips on Texas Hill Country rivers and my home waters around Rockport, TX.
