Fish. No matter what.
"The fish are out there, and you need to get to them. You could stay inside where it's warm. You could wait until the conditions are right. You could sleep in. You could wait until it's easy.
Or, you could catch fish.
Some don't understand why we fish from a kayak, why we choose a fly rod, or why we tie flies with thread that breaks halfway through tying–every time.
We do it, because it works. We fish, because we love it. We're out there, because the fish are out there."

ABOUT BEN DUCHESNEY
I'm only satisfied when I'm creating.
I started my career traveling the country, writing out of the back of my pickup truck or the center of a kayak, telling stories about fishing for Kayak Angler Magazine.
From there I went to Postfly, a startup fly fishing subscription company. For a few years I left the fishing industry to work at Constant Contact, the email marketing company. There I maintained a blog that helped small business owners create and execute their own marketing strategies.
After Constant Contact I spent a year working as the SEO Editor of Field & Stream and Outdoor Life, blending my writing and marketing skill sets to increase both organic search traffic and brand visibility.
I'm also the author of Kayak Fly Fishing: Everything you need to know to start catching fish. He is working on releasing his next book soon.
I started editorial SEO consulting to help more businesses tell their story and connect with audiences. I think media, especially the media created by passionate brands, is exciting. It's what customers everywhere are searching for right now.
I decided early in life to do what I loved. Since, I've been lucky enough to work with brands that want the same thing.
