My Lifelist

I caught approximately 17 total species of fish between the ages of zero and 37. Then I discovered roughfish.com, had my eyes opened to all the species I was missing out on in the same waters I was already fishing, and became a lifelist fisherman. In the 10 years since, I’ve upped my count to nearly 100. My kids, neither of them yet a teenager (but getting alarmingly close) have already caught more species than I caught in the first few decades of my life.
