Welcome to my Focus on Fishing website. Focus on Fishing is part of amBASSador Angling Services, a small company I started in 1986. It encompasses all my freelance outdoor writing, photography, fishing courses, seminars, tournament fishing, guiding excursions, consulting, product field testing, corporate fishing events and of late my Hooked on Fishing video clips. Look for regularly updated articles and fishing information that will help you catch more fish and hopefully entertain you at the same time. Thanks for visiting and I hope you cast a line here often.
