Tell me about yourself.
I've been an avid angler since I was a kid growing up on the farmington river and I became obsessed with kayak fishing in my teenage years and it's been my biggest passion ever since. I'm lucky enough to turn that passion into a career working as the rigging tech for Black Hall Outfitters, and I've been lucky enough to fish all along the east coast and even Hawaii.
If you were stuck on a deserted island and could only pick three things to bring with you, what would they be?
A kayak, a fishing rod, and a tropical drink with a tiny umbrella
What would you consider as your “best day of summer”?
My “best day of summer” starts before sunrise in my kayak on the sound followed by a late lunch and a few cool beverages at the marina or on the beach. The day ends on a boat cruising the sound somewhere else for more fishing and good times.
