Fish Rhymes with Wish

Fish Rhymes with Wish

FishUwerehere and the dirtbag chronicles and other adventures. Obviously fish rhymes with wish and thats been the theme but really this trip isn't just about fishing, fishing is a big passion of mine, it was a big passion of my fathers that I shared with him since my younger years and into my mid-thirties. As I got older the fishing trips grew fewer and farther apart which can happen when you chase a career and raise children. Now with my youngest being 18, I have the time to make opportunities to revisit fishing and so many other things I’m passionate about, but fishing is so meaningful to me as it connects me to my father, that is where “fishUwerehere” comes from. fishUwerehere and the dirtbag chronicles is not just about fishing, it’ll be about fishing, possibly some hunting, backpacking, hiking, water sports, and adventuring in general. We will cover my work out routine when traveling, yoga once a week and more in Costa Rica and any other activities I stumble into.

When I set off to do this to fire up a website and get involved with social media I looked at it a couple different ways my main focus was I must document this because I’ve had so much interest and support from friends, family and complete strangers, people just wanting to know my story. Honestly it became exhausting retelling the tale of where I am and where I’m going and how I got here, over and over sometimes multiple times a day retelling the same updates. With the website and social media i’m able to get it out for everyone to see and be on the same page.

Don’t take this wrong I don't mind talking about it, I would be more than happy to sit down with anyone over a beer, water, coffee, workout, etc. to tell you my story on how I got to this or talk vans and van builds. Documenting the van build and the trip is what U wanted and I’m more than happy to provide it and share the trip with U.

My documentation will be genuine and honest, all first-takes with no editing whenever possible. There will be some exceptions to this with Gopro footage being one example requiring editing assuming I can figure out how to use the damn thing efficiently. I will stay connected and try and keep you entertained.
