Angler Development Sessions
**2020 Updated Info Coming Soon!!
These sessions are not just for one level of angler. We understand some are just starting and some might be tournament champions. A1 will meet my student where they are and develop from that point on. The key to becoming great is to never stop learning and staying humble enough to know that!
The goal is to develop junior anglers using our varsity collegiate fishing experience from Adrian College through on the water sessions. Through these sessions we aim to help anglers reach their potential and put themselves in the best position to attain one of the few college fishing scholarships and be successful wherever they continue to fish.
So whether you’re looking for a summer activity, an introduction to the sport, or want to take your skills to next level, these sessions will fit your needs!
Sessions are 4 hours long
Held on lakes in or near Oakland County such as Kent Lake, White Lake, Pontiac…etc

Why on-the-water ?
In today’s generation of savvy learners and the gold mine of information available on the internet, the ability to teach yourself about anything has become the norm. The learning curve for fishing has been reduced so much by online sources, videos, and social media one might think they know it all before they even hit the water. While I am all for these information outlets and what they provide, there is still nothing that compare to on-the-water experience and the knowledge and confidence it can build.
Taking a technique from Youtube to the water may seem easy, but indeed, learning to fish with your gut and knowing how to break down lake conditions and then decide on a technique is much more valuable and obtainable only through time on the water. There is no amount of videos, lessons, webinars, or articles that can provide the learning experience of first hand on the water interaction and instruction. Through my years of learning and fishing I can assure you this is true. While I do not underestimate the ability to learn from online sources it will never compare to time on the water and being an actual practitioner of the sport.
