Originally from Eastern Kentucky, Drew was introduced to fishing at a very young age catching Bluegill and Catfish out of his grandfather’s pond. Through the years the passion grew and progressed from pond hoping for Largemouth Bass to wading creeks/rivers for Smallmouth and Muskellunge. In 2012 he moved to North Carolina to find better opportunity, where he found a great job with the company he is still working for and the love for kayak fishing. Luckily only working 3 days a week, Drew’s passion of fishing and chasing giant Largemouth has taken over.
Drew has fished competitively now for 4 years in events with Carolina Kayak Anglers, Plastic Pirate Shootout, KBF, KBS and kayaktournaments.com. 2018 was a great year with a few wins and top 5-10 finishes. “Being part of the family here at YakGear is truly great, they treat you like family and have great/quality products to show for it” mentioned Drew. I’m also part of the Wicked Weights Kayak team and Fishing With Attitude Team.
