Mike Walsh
Mike started fishing after college every summer along the Erie Canal. “About five years later,” says Mike, “I was introduced to fly-fishing and waded some amazing waters throughout the US and Canada. Later I joined a local competitive bass club that turned fishing from a past-time to a passion. My first year, I won the Classic (Non-boater) and finished second in Non-boater Angler of the Year. Although a competitive club, we are a teaching club. I’ve learned so much from this generous group of fishermen over the years. A highlight each season is the club fishing and shore lunch outing we host for our local VA veterans.”

When I entered the US Navy I got to fish several spots on the East Coast including the Chesapeake Bay and the Outer Banks.
