Andy Whitcomb is a columnist, outdoor humorist, and stressed-out father. He is the creator of justkeepreeling.com. He says there are “people who fish” … and there are “fishermen”. One of the few things he knows is that he is a “fisherman” … to the point that it could be classified as a borderline disease. Sharing this obsession is rewarding and therapeutic. He likes to encourage people to “stop and smell the crappie”. Enjoy catching fish, but more fun helping someone else hook up. Born in Florida, raised on the shores of Oklahoma’s farm ponds. Now moved to western Pennsylvania. He fished, worked and lived in the US. He also has a BS in Zoology from Oklahoma State … and he met his wife while electrofishing. He has been contributing to www.takemefishing.org on a weekly basis since 2011.
