I am a 27 year old Marine Veteran, and I have recently found my way back home to Texas. Born and raised in the Texas hill country, I grew up with the sounds of cicadas, the smell of pine and cedar and a view of rolling green hills as far as the eye can see. My favorite memory of all is the sound of the Guadalupe River flowing by as its icy cold water rushes over my feet. Growing up, fishing was all I really cared for. My tackle box was filled with nothing more than a few hooks, bobbers, and maybe a couple spinner baits. As I grew up, this dream I was living started to fade away. I got older and took on responsibilities, a wife, two children…bills. After the military, I tried to make my way back into the hill country, but I had to go where the work was. Today I reside near Sugarland, Tx, just 15 minutes south of Houston. It’s a beautiful area, but the only thing missing is, well, natural beauty. My love for bass fishing was almost no more after realizing there were no natural streams or ponds within a reasonable driving distance. I decided to make the best of what I was given. Neighborhood ponds, parks, water run-offs on the side of the road are what I have today. Fishing next to “Resident only signs” and even a few “No Fishing” signs, and getting kicked out of neighborhoods is now something that is all too familiar for me. But of course, that won’t stop me from doing what I love, because I’ll always just come back. Find me on Twitter @UrbanAnglers !

Then I started the think about it, and how writing about bass is such as general yet huge topic. Do I write about their behavior through season changes? Feeding […]

PETA Let Us Hunt Deer! Its Wildlife Conservation

For years, there has been an ongoing battle between hunters, anglers, Wildlife Conservation, outdoorsmen alike, and organizations like PETA and other animal rights groups. They cry foul every time someone posts a kill on social media or if someone is reported driving down the road with a deer in the bed of the truck. They use statistics […]

City Boys Can Fish Too

Now, I don’t consider myself a city boy, but I have talked to a lot of people who most likely never walked barefoot in the woods or on a dirt driveway. Regardless of where we came from, we still share the same love for those fat girls hiding in the water. There is quite a […]
