TOMMY SKARLIS

Most notable outdoors experts are stereotyped by a single category, such as fishing or hunting.  Tommy Skarlis breaks the mold - he’s a touring walleye and crappie fishing professional who enjoys hooking panfish through the ice, bass in the backwaters or walleyes on the massive Great Lakes as well as a promotional hunter that pursues most species of North American upland game, waterfowl and Big Game.  His charismatic and acute ability to share this multi-species knowledge with others makes Skarlis even more significant to the outdoor world.
