From Blogger to International Writer
4 years ago when I began writing a fishing column for a local newspaper (the Kingston Whig-Standard), I had no idea just where it would lead me. At the time I had been blogging here on my website since 2009, but it wasn’t until that first official ‘in print’ writing opportunity came along (thanks to a man named Jan Murphy who believed in me) that I started to come out of my shell. It inspired to write more and share my passion with a larger audience.
Fast forward to the present day and I now write for various publications and websites throughout Canada and beyond. You can learn about some of them here. One of which is Midwest Outdoors Magazine based out of Illinois. This year I was part of their ‘Canada Fever’ section sharing 3 of my most memorable Canadian fishing trips. These stories made their way throughout the United States in this publications 50th year! I now have a copy of each edition and it’s exciting to look back on the memories and anticipate making new ones this upcoming season!
The three trips I decided to share for my debut in this publication were: my adventures in Saskatchewan with Tourism Saskatchewan, the Matity’s Get Fishing crew, and the Fishinggeeks (Adam and Sean Konrad), a trip on the St. Lawrence River with Eric and accommodations at the Parks of the St. Lawrence and a multi-species adventure with Peterborough & the Kawarthas, our friend Will of Peterborough Carping Guides, and a young angler named Jaden!
Thanks to everyone that takes the time to read my newspaper/magazine columns, blogs, and articles! It’s been a fantastic way to connect with you, and share my passion & knowledge about fishing! ❤
