Brian Wildish (aka Bwild):
I'm a native Oregonian and been an avid outdoorsmen since I could crawl.
I've been pursuing trophy trout since 2005 when Ryan Daniels took me on my 1st trip to Crescent Lake. 2 months later,
I purchased a boat and have been addicted ever since. My largest brown is a 12 lb, 9 oz hen that I caught from East
Lake in 2007. My favorite lakes are East, Paulina, and Crescent Lake (all in Oregon). I'm a graduate from Oregon
State University in Construction Engineering Management and am happily married to my wife, Anna, and have a son, Jackson.

Dan McAllister (aka Hookjaw): I moved to Oregon
as a 10 month old babe and sprouted permanent roots from the start. I became obsessed with fishing and the outdoors as a young
boy under the influence of my dad, Jerry. After years of catching limits of planter trout, I got serious about catching trophy
trout in 2000 and after much patience and dedication I found some consistent success. I have landed (3) browns over 10 lbs,
with my biggest being the 11 ¼ lb hookjaw in the photo. My favorite lakes are Crescent and East. I have been involved in custom
woodworking for 20 years and have a small, self sustaining shop at my home in West Linn, where I reside with my lovely girlfriend,
Lynn and my beautiful 7 year old daughter, Ellie. Contact Dan!
