Adam’s favorite fish to fish for is Sockeye because they are one of the hardest fighting pound for pound and the fishing is very action-packed! In Adam’s spare time he also enjoys golfing, fishing, and being with his family.

Adam is happily married to his wife, McKenzie, who currently works full-time in the medical field, and also runs a small business in the Tri-Cities called Without Wilderness.
