Thinking back as a kid, I can't remember an age not fishing. Camping was a big thing to our family of six. We would be packed to the roof in the family station wagon set out for a weekend of family fun, sun and fishing. As I got older my love for fishing only grew. In my early teenage years I tried many a time to recruit my friends to the great outdoors. Some had alternative plans, their reply being "What's with this fishing thing anyways?!" Nevertheless I fished all the more. In the past years we have had a lot of fun between the tournaments, radio shows, commercials, trade shows and filming our own TV show "FISH TV!"; however my favorite memories and times I'm most thankful to god for are with my own family. Fishing off the dock at the cottage and hearing one of my little girls shouting "Fish On Daddy". In a world that just keeps getting busier it sure is great to know that some things don't have to change.
Ron James has been fishing for over twenty years. He started fishing when he was just a youngster with his father Bill James (god rest his soul). He moved onto tournament fishing as his passion grew. With numerous wins and top finishes, the next step had to be taken. He met Leo Stakos and the unstoppable force of Fish TV happened. His goal is to teach everyone what he’s learned over the years.
I don't remember how old I was when I started fishing; but I was definitely very young. I remember when my dad took me for the first time I was hooked for life. Growing up I was lucky enough to have friends who enjoyed fishing, which made it even better. Every chance we had, whether we walked or rode our bike, we went fishing all the time. As I got older, I wanted to start fishing all over the world. It didn't matter what species it was, if I had a rod and reel in my hand I was happy. I've been fortunate enough to experience great fishing from different parts of the world. From salmon runs in Alaska to peacock bass smacking top water lures in Venezuela, and everywhere in between. I believe that to really enjoy fishing, you shouldn't limit yourself to just one type of fish, or style of fishing. Experience as much as you can and you'll be hooked for life.
