Non-Angling Hero Peyton Manning – “He’s a student of the game and why I like him so much is how he goes about it. That’s the cool thing about him – he’s that good.”
When Not Fishing “Either thinking about it or talking about it. Hanging out with my family is a big priority for me.”
Why He Fishes “It’s all I’ve ever wanted to do since I was 2. This is the dream and what I set out to do. That’s all it’s really about. I never deviated from fishing. It’s never been, ‘I want to be a basketball player or football player.’ It’s always been about fishing. I love the competition.”
