Wired2fish is making some moves to expand our content, especially in the areas of how-to tutorials and the latest fishing tackle reviews. To that end we’re happy to announce the hiring of our new full-time Content Manager, Walker Smith.
Smith has a solid background in competitive angling, website management, and freelance writing — all skills that will prove invaluable to us as we continue on our incredible rate of growth. We’re committed to providing anglers with the best video, photography and written content and more of it, and we can’t do that without more talent and resources.
Smith’s received a Bachelor’s Degree in Business from Georgia College State University. Upon graduation he took a job brokering nuts and founded the Nut Exchange website which he still maintains today. When he wasn’t working on nut exchanges, he freelanced several articles the last couple of years for publications like FLW Outdoors, Georgia Outdoor News, About.com, Live for Hunting and Wired2fish.
He was a competitive angler with the GCSU bass team of which he was also president for a time. He competed on various circuits as well as the qualifier circuit for the school. He’s an accomplished angler on Lakes Sinclair and Oconee in Georgia as well as popular fishing destination Lake Lanier. He’s won numerous tournaments on the lakes as well as spent time guiding anglers and showing them the fun of fishing.
“This is a lifelong dream of mine,” Smith said, “of which I’ve worked several years to reach. I’m so blessed to start a full-time career with such a well-respected, highly motivated company like Wired2fish. Fishing is, always has been and always will be an intregal part of my life. I am excited beyond measure and look forward to the chance to use my experience, knowledge and passion to help other anglers excel at fishing and have more fun doing it.”
“We’re excited to add a talented writer and accomplished angler to our full-time staff,” said Wired2fish Vice President, Jason Sealock, “and the addition of Walker is going to give readers an improved experience at Wired2fish through better and more frequent how-to features, videos, tackle reviews, blogs, etc. as we expand and improve our coverage of everything bass fishing and beyond.
“We spent a week with Walker in Atlanta for the Forrest Wood Cup and feel he’s going to bring a lot to the table in terms of a better Wired2fish for our rapidly growing readership.”
