Captains

TeamWhyKnot Captains are not only passionate and positive fishermen and women, but they are also leaders in their communities and fishing experts in their community and in their specialty. They go above and beyond to connect with and inspire other members of the WKF community, both locally and nationally. They believe in the future of fishing and demonstrate their belief by getting more people on the water and promoting responsible angling ethics.

These awesome anglers will be posting many blogs, pictures and videos throughout the season to help educate anglers no matter what their skill level or target species!
