PA – John Wert
I was a curious kid and therefore I was a fisherman. I grew up in Central Pennsylvania where I learned how to catch wild Brook Trout from cold mountain creeks and bronze backed Smallmouth on the Susquehanna River and I was lucky to have friends and family who encouraged it. I spent a few years out west where I learned how to row a boat and swing a wet fly. Now I live, once again, in Pennsylvania. I love sharing the sport with new fishermen and teaching my boys to be curious, like I was. Archery rivals fishing for my time. I compete and coach and in the fall I’ll put down my rods for a few weeks while I hunt Whitetail Deer with traditional bows.

Midwest – Adam Aikens
Adam Aikens grew up conventional fishing in Fargo, North Dakota before moving to Michigan in 2015 where he was introduced to fly fishing by the pastor of his church after complaining to him about the lack of walleye fishing in the area. Walleye fishing soon felt like a distant memory as Adam took advantage of the many opportunities to fly fish for trout and steelhead in Western Michigan. In May 2017, Adam was given a chance to manage a fly shop, lodge, and outfitter on the Pere Marquette River before moving “back home” to Grand Forks, ND in July 2019. He has been living the sales rep life since August 2019 and is grateful for a fun job that allows him to travel to the fishiest places and work with some of the fishiest people in the Upper Midwest and Great Lakes Regions! In his free time, Adam loves to travel with his wife and fish for trout wherever they can be found, but has a soft spot for the wild, native Brown Trout that reside in the rivers and hill lochs of Scotland.
