Jeff is an avid angler and writer who started tournament bass fishing in 1990 but can still remember his first bass as a kid caught on a small Kansas lake with his dad. “My first love is bass tournament fishing, but I also enjoy fly-fishing and fishing for a variety of species, including trout, pike, walleye and wiper. I now look forward to learning saltwater techniques as well.” Jeff is a Pure Fishing Berkley Pro Staff angler.
A former Bassmaster Weekend Series Regional Championship (’06) and National Championship (’07) Qualifier, and a Life Member of the Bass Anglers Sportsman Society (B.A.S.S.), Jeff has qualified for multiple State Teams (2001,’08, ’09, ’11, ’12, ’13,'14) by learning and fishing with bass clubs that are affiliated with BASS Nation (BASS) and The Bass Federation (TBF). A guest speaker at Bass Pro Shops Outdoor World, Jeff has presented numerous seminars and tank demonstrations and is dedicated to promoting the sport of fishing through education and youth. He writes for www.FishExplorer.com, www.outdoorsaFISHionado.blogspot.com, and is a Web Editor for fishing related websites.
