Fishing and the outdoors is an important activity in Doug’s family.
“I was fishing as young as five years old. I remember when my father gave me my first rod, reel and tackle box. It was a very exciting day for me. I grew up fishing for Bass, Crappie and Catfish. Later in life, I fished for many different species of fish throughout the world catching Spanish mackerel, Wahoo, Yellowfin tuna and more.”Doug Saint-Denis
