My mother always said, “Bill would rather fish than eat”, and she was correct. Fishing is the greatest sport on earth. Having loved to fish from the day I learned to walk, fishing has always been a part of my life.
In the early years of my career I was into marketing, advertising and sales. The last of these “early” years afforded me the opportunity to fish way more than the average person but I was not in “the fishing business”. The decision was made that once my youngest went away to college I would sell my business and make fishing my “full time” business. So 5 years ago that is what I did. In the past 5 years I have worked as account manager for Shimano’s advertising agency where I helped to start the Shimano Fishing Tour, worked for FLW where I started the Striped Bass Tour and served as Director of Sales, and I worked as Promotions Manager for Bass Pro Shops. All of these were challenging but fun jobs.
Presently, I work as Pro Staff for BoatUS ANGLER, Navico, Minn Kota, Driftmaster, Tidewater, Cannon and others - traveling, (fishing in cool places with great fishermen and fisherwomen), to educate about fishing and some of the truly great services and products manufactured for the sport. When I am not traveling, (most of the time even when I am..), I’m fishing or talking about fishing.
