Raised near the confluence of the Missouri and Mississippi Rivers in Spanish Lake, Missouri, the outdoors and especially fishing has always been a passion. That passion and a writing interest has led to a fishing blog, River King Fishing, 2 eBooks, co-founding CARPSTL fishing club, and writing for Carp Angler Magazine as creative side project pursuits. The River King Fishing mission is to help anglers spend time with family, connect with nature, and catch more fish with content promoting fishing guides, travel, art, and the growing sport of Carp fishing in North America.
Most importantly, Patrick is a dad and serves in multiple ministries at Harvester Christian Church.
