I learned how to fish at a young age and would often be part of fishing trips at the cottage with my father and two older brothers. Sometimes, it was by choice; other times, because I had to. Fishing quickly became a passion for me growing up. My dad (Edju) would keep me occupied for hours getting the birds’ nests out of his fishing reels.

I love to target largemouth bass in shallow water using weed-less baits and want to learn more about fishing for different species. I love learning about fishing and love teaching others about fishing. Being in nature is so important to my wellbeing and is a healthy part of my life. My big accomplishment this year was out fishing my dad.
