In 1974, at the age of 2, I had the joy of catching my first crappie while fishing with my dad under an old Coleman Lantern, hanging in the trees at Old River (Louisiana) at night. This marked the beginning of a lifelong love affair with fishing and nature.
Since that unforgettable night with my father, much time has passed. We traveled together, spending countless hours fishing the waterways of Louisiana and Mississippi, and he imparted in me a deep love and appreciation for those precious moments on the water.
In his own words, “Time spent fishing is added to your life. It never takes away from it.”
Although my dad has now journeyed to that big lake in the sky, his legacy lives on. I’ve fulfilled a dream to take others fishing and share the same sense of wonder that he so perfectly instilled in me all those years ago. My dedication lies in helping others create cherished memories of special times on the water, just as my dad did with me.
