Hero (explain): I have multiple heroes. First and foremost, Jesus Christ. He has enabled me to do so many things in this life that I am very thankful for.
As for a fishing Hero, my good friend and mentor, Frank Ippoliti, would get my vote. He is an incredible angler that really spent the time to show me how professional fishing works both business-wise and fishing-wise. He is a great man, and is continuing to teach me new things every time we hit the water.
