Rodney’s passion for fishing began at a young age, fishing the local ponds in Central Florida for bass and pan fish. The child of missionaries, he was able to fish in several great destinations around the world including the lush tropical shores of Belize. There he began his true love for the salt water lifestyle, catching Snook, Bonefish, Yellow Tall Snapper, and free diving for Conch and Lobsters.
Later he moved to eastern Pennsylvania, where Rainbow and Brown Trout were at the top of the list. Adapting to these completely different styles of fishing Rodney was able to bring his experience back to Central Florida where he’s competed on 3 separate Southern Kingfish tournament teams which brought him several times to the SKA Nationals. Rodney has been performing fishing seminars and clinics for several years for his sponsors, Rapala, Sufix, VMC Hooks, and Engel Deep Blue Coolers. He now fishes the local tournament scene in Port Canaveral, Florida, where he enjoys targeting some of his favorite bottom and pelagic species.
