Twinning Wahoo for the Gale Force Twins

#2 - They mentioned ME? That's crazy!

(If you don't know the Gale Force Twins, you should definitely go check out their YouTube channel - they make some incredibly informative videos about fishing and all kinds of other outdoors-y fun stuff)

Since this piece has been finished and sent out, I've had the pleasure of meeting them at The Fort Lauderdale International Boat Show. Best of luck to them and all of their future endeavors! Some of the hardest working women in the industry right here:
