About Us

Hey fellow fishing fanatiks! Thank you for visiting our site!

My name is Tim Ryan and I’m the founder of Fishing Fanatiks.

My family decided to create this site as a way to share our passion with others. We’re just your typical family that is hooked on fishing!

We live in Pennsylvania, which offers awesome freshwater fishing.

We’re also close enough to the Jersey Shore where the surf fishing is great.

I do most of the writing for this site. I have over 30 years of fishing experience and I love to share my knowledge with others.

I have written fishing related content for several major outlets, such as Travel and Leisure.

I’m also a member of the International Game Fish Association (IGFA).

We’d love you hear from you, so please drop us a line using the contact page or email!

Thanks and happy fishing!

Tim Ryan
