If you were not fishing what would you be doing:     Collecting fishing lures… I have an extensive Fred Arbogast jitterbug collection and enjoy finding colors I do not have.

Hero     My hero would have to be my father, Henry Copley. He instilled a love for the outdoors in me at an early age. both fishing and hunting. I don’t think I would have the drive to be the angler I am without his encouragement. I wish he was still with us to see what I have accomplished in the last 13 years.
