Fishing Seminars

If your club, school, or organization has an interest in fishing seminars or speaking programs, you’ve come to the right place.

You will find our fishing seminars and programs in-depth and professional. We cover all equipment in that event’s topic onsite for hands-on learning.

If you have a subject in mind other than what’s listed, let me know. I would be more than happy to devise a program to fit your needs.

My programs most usually run about an hour to 1-1/2 hours. But I can extend or shorten them depending on your scheduling needs.

Rates depend on travel, expenses, program, and materials needed. As a professional, if I am hired to speak at a program, it is my responsibility to get there on my own. So I would not expect travel or hotel reimbursements.

If you have any questions and need answers, feel free to contact me.
