Bio: I grew up fishing in Northern California, then lived in the Atlanta area for 9 yrs before moving to the Panhandle in my mid twenties, I fell in love with Florida’s emerald waters, extensive bayous and beautiful grass flats.

Name: Racko Singh
Location: Toronto, Ontario
Bio: No tournament wins, or world records broken. But I’ve fished some
pretty remote places in the world. From Parismania, Costa Rica
chasing Jungle tarpon, and snook on a fly rod, to the beautiful
islands of Seychelles, and Mauritius. I was the only guy on a Long
Range charter throwing poppers a couple of years back. They use to
make fun of us spinning guys. Mouldmaker by trade producing very
intricate parts for the aerospace and automotive industry, and tapping
guys out studying the art of Brazilian Jiu Jitsui. Had the great
oppurtunity to particpate in the first tuna tagging program in Panama
in 2011, and understand the importance of tag & release. Love to
fish! That’s it! Next stop Puerta Carreno, to break the World record
for Peacock Bass, who’s with me?
