This weeks AMFisH fishing vlog – The AMFisH creation story, video #100!

Hi fellow AMFisHers!  This is a very special AMFisH fishing vlog that is going live this week, as it is the AMFisH creation story vlog as well as my 100th video that has gone live on my YouTube channel!


AMFisH goes back many years to the time when I was in the mid teens and thinking of what wanted to do for a living or what I wanted to be part of as a career, a very confusion time for me as I knew fishing was what I wanted to do but had not idea how I would get to doing it.

Fishing intrigued me since I was a toddler, every time I was near water which was not too often I felt this connection with the water and just seeing someone fishing made me curious.  I recall camping with my family and being around 6 to 7 years old, sitting by the lake campgrounds watching this older man catching fish.   He had walked out to about mid thigh deep water and was casting, every few minutes his fishing rod was bending and I knew he was fighting something he had caught.

After seeing him catch a few fish I walked over as he was coming back to shore and was amazed to see fish he had tied up with some rope.  They were resting in the shallow water and as he approached the shore he said hi how are you.  Being a very shy kid I just smiled and he said nice fish eh, I moved my head up and down and walked away.

So intrigued at what I had seen I knew that this was something I had to do, not sure how but I had to find a way.  Growing up with non outdoorsy parents I did not fish much as a young child but have some fond memories of a few outings, catching  my first fish ever a small rock bass on a worm, that was on a hook tied to some line dangling off a thick 2ft branch.  Fishing in Florida off a pier and catching nothing while others were and those very special outings when camping with my first bullet cast fishing reel/rod combo casting out a dried out black rubber worm and catching nothing hour after hour but sticking with it in hopes I would catch something.

I have very few pictures of me fishing as a child but the memories I had kept me going all these years along with watching fishing shows on TV as that is how I lived my fishing outings through the shows.   So many years later it is an unbelievable feeling to be living my passion/dream and it’s hard to even describe how amazing it is!

I thank everyone out there for their support and look forward to sharing another 100 videos with all of you!

Tight lines!
