After getting his Masters degree in finance, Robert Field decided the eight-to-five life wasn’t as appealing as society convinced him it would be. After a few years, he ditched the corporate grind to pursue his passion for fishing, filming and the great outdoors. He’s now a full-time kayak angler and videographer who chases everything from largemouth bass to mahi mahi to big sharks, all from a kayak. His popular YouTube series Field Trips with Robert Field follows him as he travels across all 50 states while living in a 29-foot camper full-time. Robert’s ultimate goal is to help motivate and inspire others to chase their dreams instead of chasing zeroes in a bank account.

Field Trips revolves around Robert’s love for exploring unfamiliar bodies of water in search of species he’s never caught before. He says the added challenge of having to stumble his way through new techniques and unfamiliar fish makes finding success that much more rewarding. He uses YakGear products and Railblaza accessories to stay organized on the water and to ensure he never misses a shot.
