I have fished since a young man of 5 yrs old. My father had a baitcaster in my hand in an old row boat tied to the dock of our Upper Peninsula Mich cabin on the lake. I fished the original RedMan tourney series back in the late 1960s...doing more learning than winning. I attended colllege at Northerm Mich University and relocated from Illinois to the U.P. as a Science/Math teacher. I started taking folks fishing almost 30 years ago and started a professional Guiding business before I retired...which I operate today.
