I started fishing with my Dad when I was 3 years old. I could work a fly rod by age 5. I have been bass fishing since I was a teenager. I consider myself a grass roots weekend warrior bass angler; I am the kind of guy that makes this sport what it is from the bottom up. I have a passion for bass fishing that fuels my drive to be on the water every day that my "40 hour job" allows, which translates into from 60 to 100 days per year.
I now represent NPS, National Pro Staff. I have benefited from my NPS membership in so many ways that I cannot list them all. It has been and is a terrific platform for me to develop relationships with sponsors, share my knowledge and experience, and connect with anglers around the county.

I am proud to represent Fins USA as a pro staff member. I am excited to once again include braided line as an key component of my bass fishing arsenal. Fins offs a variety of situational braids to help anglers be more successful. www.finsfishing.com.

I am proud to represent Black Label Balsa/Black Label Tackle as a Field Staff member. Black Label, owned by Bassmaster Classic Champion Cliff Pace, produces top-quality balsa crankbaits and topwater propbaits. www.blacklabeltackle.com.

I represent Swagger Tackle Company as a Pro Staff member. Weekend warrior anglers often find it difficult to justify using tungsten in their bass fishing because of the cost. Swagger Tackle Company offers premium tungsten at a bargain price. See their complete line of tungsten products at www.swaggertackle.com.

I am a Silver Thread Fishing Line Brand Ambassador. Using their co-polymer and fluorocarbon fishing lines have truly added versatility to my fishing. Check out their selection of very affordable fishing lines at www.lurenet.com.

I am a member of the Manley Fishing Rods Pro Staff. Check out their manleyfishing.com and take a look at their "adjust-a-butt" rod technology. Using their rods has added more versatility to my fishing.

I am a Tackle Webs Pro Staff member. They produced a terrific line of storage accessories for all types of boats and coolers. See all of their products at www.tacklewebs.com. I have used their products in my boats for the past few years, and am proud to represent them.

I am currently supported by Bison Coolers. Please give them a look at bisoncoolers.com. They manufacture premium level coolers, tumblers, and more at less than premium prices. I carry a 12-pack soft-side cooler. It's terrific. I'd put it up against any cooler out there. Their tumblers are the best! My 30 oz. tumbler full of coffee is my traveling companion.

I am a member of the KJ's Custom Lures Fishing Team. Located in Ponca City, OK, Roy and his wife create some awesome custom-painted lures and soft plastics. You can see them at kjscustomlures.com

I am proud to be a Pro Staff member of Cinnetic Fishing. See them at cinnetic-us.com. Recently, I have added their new EVO T.E. bait caster to my bass fishing arsenal. Their full line of spinning reels is second-to-none.

I am proud to be an American Field Staff member for Fishbum Outfitters. They produce the baddest fishing gear on the planet! What an honor! You can see their gear at fishbumoutfitters.com.

I am a member of the Xcite Baits Pro Staff. Xcite produces exceptional baits, especially soft plastics that contain no salt. Check out their fine line of products at xcitebaits.com.

I am a member of the Interstate Bait pro staff. They are makers of spices, flavored sunflower seeds, and flavored hemp seeds. Sunflower seeds are my favorite outdoor snack, and one of my favorite snacks in general. And, I also enjoy cooking. Their products fit me perfectly. Check out their products at www.interstatebait.com

I work to improve my knowledge and refine my skills as a bass fisherman simply out of a drive to improve and be the best I can be. Fish finding skills, fish catching execution skills, boat operation, electronics operating, equipment knowledge and use, are areas in which I strive to improve. My goal is to replace shortfalls in natural talent with hard work and preparation. I feel like I am pretty good at many techniques and presentations. I have always had an inner debate on which is better, be a specialist or be versatile. I have chose to be versatile and be as good as I can be with many techniques and presentations.

I have competed at the club level, local level and regional level. I competed mostly in team events for many years. I have fished Bass World Sports, USA Bassin, and a few others. I have also competed in several open tournaments in my area. Now, my focus is entirely on FLW Walmart BFL events. I competed as a co-angler in both the Illini and Music City Divisions in 2016. I have competed in the front of the boat in the past. I am competing in the Illini Division as a pro in 2017 riding in my 2016 920 Pro XP Phoenix boat, and I will compete in the Mountain Division as a co-angler as well. I am hoping to fish a couple of the Music City Division events as well, either as a pro or co.

Fishing affords me the opportunity to meet great people, visit great places, and experience things in the outdoors that most see only on TV. I enjoy sharing my knowledge and experiences with as many people as possible....especially kids. God bless and good fishin'.
