Presented by – Jacob & Audia (fishing newbie)
Jake’s Why: I enjoy sharing my passion and experience in the outdoors with family and friends. When you share in the thrill of a first catch or the awe of surrounding scenery, you form bonds with your fishing companions that can last a lifetime. I spend hundreds of hours annually participating in various outdoor activities with fishing taking up the highest percentage of that time.
Audia’s Why: Jake is my fishing mentor and I have learned so much from him. Fishing is a great way to connect with nature and the outdoors. Not only did I find a new hobby, but fishing is the perfect way to support positive mental health and enhance social interactions.
