Born and raised in northwest Washington state, I've been fishing these waters for over 40 years. In 2016 I discovered Hobie Kayaks, and my fishing world opened up to a whole new level. We have such an abundance of species to target in both fresh and salt water. One day you will find me on Puget Sound chasing Coho salmon out of the Hobie, the next on a local river chasing Pink Salmon, and the day after that on a local lake targeting Kokanee or Rainbow trout. Nothing makes me happier than taking a new kayak angler out for their first time, or helping a struggling angler and getting them into their first kayak fish. Once they have experienced what kayak fishing is all about, they are just as hooked on the experience as I am.
