Robert H. McConnell grew up in rural Western Pennsylvania. It was in the woods of the Appalachian foothills where he developed an affinity for fishing and anything related to the outdoors. Ever since moving to Texas, Rob has been enamored with the ecological diversity that East Texas holds, especially when it comes to the multitude of fish species in the creeks of the Pineywoods. He continues his passion for fishing and can often be found exploring the waterways of East Texas. Rob now lives in Houston, Texas, with his wife.
