I am a 38 year old, native Kentuckian, married to my wife Casey and we have a child/dog named Hobie! In the last 12 years my fishing passion has been geared towards the kayak tournament scene. I grew up in Kentucky with a father that loved fishing and I was fortunate enough that he would take me with him as a small boy all over the country. He exposed me to a wide array of fisheries like Santee Cooper, Kissimmee chain, Coosa River, Tennessee River and some of the Great Lakes like Erie and Lake St. Clair. Having a rounded fishing upbringing has allowed me to be comfortable and competitive in any fishing environment. I am super excited for the opportunity to return to Sweden for Hobie Fishing World’s 9, Sweden was amazing for the World’s 7 and I am looking forward to this one being even better!
Hobie Fishing Worlds 9 from Åmål, Sweden is brought to you by the hard work and tireless promotion of the sport by the following sponsors, organisations, and clubs.
We would like to thank our sponsors for their on-going assistance and support, without which putting on an event of this scale would not be possible.
