Meet the Expert: Chad LaChance

“Fishful Thinker is a state of mind, pure and simple. Not a person, place, or genre; rather a mindset that besets those who think fishy thoughts. It’s the relentless quest of knowledge coupled with the application, the wave of success and failure, and the countless hours daydreaming of the next opportunity. It’s anticipation, preparation, participation, and reflection…primal yet sophisticated. It’s youthful exuberance and ageless wisdom; a process without end where answers bring questions, and success leaves one yearning for the next challenge. It’s respect for the quarry, environment, and peers, the sharing of knowledge, and the understanding of an angler’s place in the grand scheme, however humbling that may be.” – Chad LaChance (aka the Fishful Thinker)
