I can help with tackle making questions inshore/offshore fishing from trolling,drifting, bottom fishing,light to heavy stand up style fishing, Japanese vertical jigging,surf/shore/rock fishing. I'm always glad to help.

Experience in the area

I was a professional guide and a tackle manufacturer, was taken under the wing of a retired marlin skipper who showed me the ropes and later joined the tournament circuit in my country. I have put those on hold to pursue a career in the corporate world, but I still fish regularly and make my own lures and flies...I get the chance to travel the world and fish all around. I have experience on making the most out of fishing situations like when you have to fish on boats that are not designed for sportfishing. I generally make things challenging just to see how things tick, along the way, you would be amazed at what you learn.
