On The Water

About Me

From the day Allen caught a 15lb catfish on his college’s campus, a passion was ignited after many years of hunting primarily deer and turkey. With the help of fishing partner and mentor Charles Parrish, the Hampden-Sydney Anglers Club was born in the Fall of 2009. Sophmores in college, Allen and Charlie competed in the inaugural season of the Forrest L. Wood National Guard College Fishing League. A 3rd place finish of 40 teams on Lake Gaston, VA led to a 3rd place, three day regional finish on Lake Norman, NC in November of the same year. The Top 5 teams qualified for the three-day National Championship in TN. A feat most fishermen never accomplish, Allen led his team to a first place, 10,000-dollar Qualifier on Smith Mountain Lake, VA in the early spring of 2011. The win solidified a second regional birth in three years and a passion that has yet to dissipate.
