I have been fly fishing the past 20 years and have been known to wet a line as I pass by a hole traveling the backroads of Texas. Cody is the greatest fishing partner anyone could have, and we do enjoy our time on the water in the Mitzi Skiff flats boat, snapping photos of each other, and our catches. I like catching any fish, any size.
