I am not wealthy, I am not famous. But I have everything that I ever need in life. Family, friends, and fishing. Most people won’t understand why fishing falls with the traditional topics of importance in the life of average folks, but fishing is what drives me. It’s not the catching, although I like nothing better than actually accomplishing something on the water. What drives me is the act of fishing. All species, all water, from a kayak or standing on the shores of the Bay of Fundy: It’s about the solitude, the friends, the time spent in the outdoors. Sunshine, rain, cold. Summer and winter. I make the most of the time I have on the water, I learn something new every time I go out, and I truly enjoy the process, the preparation, and the time I spend on the water. Fishing takes away all of the stresses and troubles of every day life, it takes me away from the desk and the tiny window I look out in my Monday to Friday 9 to 5 job. It’s a passion, and it’s something that I love to share with those around me.
