I can't tell you how excited and proud I am of a hometown kid from here in Gilbert, Arizona...Josh Bertrand.
I used to take him fishing as early as 12 years old - now is a recent 24 and Guiding! LINK
I was learning from him way back then! He was fortunate to have so many guys take him fishing when he was too young to drive!
The kid has always been extremely impressive as an angler and as a person. He is also a gifted speaker at seminars and presentations.
He's made it to the upper crust of the angling world! Wow!
Anyway, keep your eye on the name. He's a class act. When I see the names he's competing against on page 2 of that article it blows me away.
