For Richard fishing isn’t just a hobby, it’s a tradition as he follows in his father footsteps. Dobyns is a seasoned angler with metal to prove it.

He’s quick on his feet and knows how to adjust on game day.  If you have ever met Richard you know that he’s a simple and easy going guy who is out not only to win but most of all have a fun time doing it.
