Non-Angling Hero "My wife (Lesley). She's a great mom."
When Not Fishing "I like to drive my little Corvette around California with my wife and just have fun."
Why He Fishes "Because I love it. When I was 6 or 7 years old I really liked it, and when I was around 13 I told myself that's what I wanted to do for a living. All I've really done is fish, so I really love it."
