Ross Townsend has lived the life of a westcoast fisherman ever since the day he was big enough to hold a salmon rod. Born and raised on the westcoast of B.C., Ross was quickly handed down the fine arts of hunting and fishing from his father. By the time Ross was an adolescent it was obvious he had the talent, and patience to be one of the best. Now an adult, Ross is a big man and definitely what you would consider "A Mans Man". Far surpassing all of his mentors growing up, Ross obsesses and specializes in Chinook fishing and doesn't just fish for these monsters, he hunts them.
