My brother had cerebral palsy, which took up the majority of my mother's time, so my dad always took me along with him either taking care of our horses or fishing. I developed an unquenchable desire to do both! At the age of two, I had the German measles which caused my hearing loss. I have never let my hearing impairment slow me down or hinder me in any of my endeavors. Fishing is more than a hobby to me, it's an extreme passion!
