Brian was born and raised in Central Pennsylvania and now resides in Mifflinburg, PA. He is married to his wife, Debbie, and works third shift at Conagra Foods. Brian is blessed with the ability to be able to run on very little sleep which works perfectly for his job and his love of fishing. He is able to work all night and fish most of the day.
Brian’s childhood years were spent fishing Penns Creek and many other streams and lakes around his home. His first love of fishing as a youth was fly fishing for anything that would take his fly, but he has since grown to love fishing for bass and walleye in lakes and rivers.

This expertise has enabled Brian to win numerous tournaments over the past 10 years and he has been fortunate to be able to fish many tournaments with his father and brothers. He has fished the Wal-Mart, BFL Division as a Co-Angler and has four top ten finishes out of six events he has entered. He continues to fish the Anglers Choice Series and also fishes many local tournaments as well. He recently won the Berwick Tournament on the Susquehanna River in which he had to best an 80 boat field. Brian is always a force to be reckoned with when fishing the Susquehanna River.
