I have listed some links below to people that I follow and admire. They offer different services and are highly recommended.
Barbara Terry at Waldorf Publishing. Basically because Barbara has created an awesome publishing company, a serious challenger to the mainstays, while simultaneously giving opportunities to authors previously published or not, and she pretty much rocks as a person too. And she’s publishing my first collection of essays. Her information is linked below.
Tim “NCPIERMAN” Taramelli is a philanthropist at heart. He can often be found taking veterans or wounded warriors fishing – for free. He also has a successful guide service and I have no doubt if you decided to take a charter with him you would have a blast. He specializes in Red Drum and Trout, but seriously – this guy can catch anything and also chases all freshwater species. If you are in eastern NC – call him. Below are a few links to his websites.
Ncangler.com is North Carolina’s premier fishing website. It’s a family-oriented website full of recent fishing reports, debates and an absolute load of great people and information. Give their website a look when you’re planning trips or just browsing online. Below is the link to their website.
Bobby Workman is one of the best striper fishermen and guides I know. I’ve been on his boat numerous times, and always catch fish, and have a blast every time. He specializes in striped bass and crappie charters and focuses primarily on Kerr and Jordan Lakes. Below is a link to his website.
Chad Hoover is a busy guy. He is co-owner of HOOK1 Kayak Fishing Gear, which has three locations. He runs the KBF OPEN, an annual two day kayak fishing tournament on Kentucky Lake with HUGE payouts.

He developed CONSEAL – a silent traction system – a durable sound dampening technology which is now available at HOOK1, and is a published author to boot. Some of Chad’s links are listed below.
