He can also be found competing in numerous fishing tournaments in Ontario and the United States. He is a writer, photographer, blogger and host of CHEX TV's Casting With Kids. Professional memberships include OFAH, BASS, FMZ 17 Advisory Council, and president of the CBAF Lindsay Club. You can follow his fishing successes and failures on facebook and twitter.
