Tom Rowland Podcast


May 9, 2018

Derek DeYoung is a renowned fish artist who travels between Montana, Florida Keys (Big Pine) and Northern Michigan to pursue fish and get inspiration to reproduce them on canvas.  I caught up with Derek through Instagram and asked him if he would like to be a guest on Saltwater Experience.  He said he would like to do it but his schedule was very tight. We found a day and made it happen. Derek was one of my favorite guests and we became fast friends.  I knew I wanted to do a podcast with him, but it seemed like we had run out of time.  I offered him a ride back to Big Pine instead of his wife having to pick him up and we put on the headphones and hit record. I travel a lot and some of the best conversations I have ever had were on long drives across the country.  This drive was exactly that.  Derek is a great conversationalist and we talked about how he has achieved so much success in the fishing world.
