Our speaker for April 28 will be Mark Machado
Captain Mark has been fishing his whole life – he took up the sport at the age of five and has been hooked since. Together with his dad, Mark would regularly go fishing around the freshwater streams of California. He has been featured in various magazines and fishing TV shows. It's no secret that Capt.
