Gary Friedman, originally from New York, began fishing at age six with his grandfather for flounder. "My grandfather taught me everything he knew. I owe it all to him", says Gary. As Gary grew his interests in other fish grew as well. He fished the north for bluefish, striper, sharks and tuna. Gary got his first boat at 17 -- an 18ft Bowrider. Throughout Gary's life, he has fished both the north shore and south; Atlantic Beach to Montauk. He has also traveled to Puerto Rico & the Bahamas to fish as well

At age 19, Gary began traveling to Florida for fishing excursions. Each and every year he would take at least one trip to Florida, including the Keys. He also took an interest in fly-fishing around the same time he got his first boat. At age 33, Gary decided to make Florida his permanent home where he now fishes 2-3 times a week. He is currently a chef in Delray Beach and lives in North Palm Beach. He is also a member of the West Palm Beach Fishing Club
