It's about giving, not getting! I devote my time to fishing with those about me and putting a smile on other faces while teaching those around us responsibility through angling. I am pro-honesty, though it gets me in trouble alot. Active in politics, (I have run and lost three years in a row), am the creator and web master of the Island Anglers here in Venice, Florida. Two college degrees, have lived in over 35 countries, been to almost every state, grew up as a kid in the Netherlands (Holland), born and am from Texas! My true love are my children and spouse Catherine along with my writing, photography and fishing.
