As a Guide, I view my job to be also that of a steward of the resource and I take that roll very seriously. I spend considerable time working with the Coastal Conservation Association and other conservation groups advocating against destructive and unsustainable fishing practices and serious threats to our coastal habitat and water-quality . When hiring me, you know you’re fishing with someone who is fighting to save our NC fisheries saved from issues from over-harvest and destructive fishing practices like estuarine gill nets.
