Gary and his son Phillip have made their pastime into a career by teaching others to fish. Gary has worked as a guide on Choke Canyon in Texas as well as on Lake Guerrero in Mexico. They have traveled extensively through the U.S. participating in fishing tournaments as well as giving fishing demonstrations.

Teaching fishing is Gary’s and Phillip’s trademark. They teach techniques that enable anyone fishing to improve their abilities on the water. “ The Travelin’ Fish Tanks” are valuable teaching tools designed to give the spectators an underwater view of lures and baits. Each mobile aquarium is 12 feet high and 40 feet long with its own transportation rig, and can be seen easily by everyone in a large crowd because of its size.

Gary is the inventor of the “Telescopic” lure retriever that extends 15 feet. Throughout the years Gary has worked closely with tackle manufactures to field test different baits and lures. “The Travelin’ Fish Tanks” are an excellent proving ground for these lures.

Performing more than 150 shows & demonstrations year-round with the tanks, Gary and Phillip have developed quite an ability to do trick casting.

As part of their “Get Hooked on Fish, Not on Drugs” campaign, Gary and Phillip have developed a philosophy about children. “If you teach a child about an activity like fishing, they are less likely to become a problem child. We like to bring a child up on the Tank’s casting deck to help them reel in a big fish. It’s a great thrill for a child to catch a fish in front of a large crowd.”

“We fish with lots of people all over the country, and one of the best parts of this job is meeting new people and hopefully teaching them something that can help them as anglers.”
