Fishing Manager: Steven Palmer
Steven is a native Texan who grew up fly fishing for anything that swam in Texas warm water—before throwing a fly at carp was cool. Steven has since fished extensively out West and enjoys chasing redfish and speckled trout on the Texas coast. When he is not fishing, he enjoys everything outdoors, including waterfowl hunting, camping, and hiking. Retail is new to Steven, but he is excited about the challenge and turning his passion into his work.
