AmbassadorColby Blackwell

Colby Blackwell, a dedicated angler and conservationist from Birmingham, Alabama, started fishing at a young age across various global destinations, including the Florida Keys, Bahamas, Belize, Panama, Costa Rica, and top spots in the United States. Featured in fishing magazines for remarkable catches, such as a 180 lb. yellowfin tuna and a blue marlin from his kayak in Costa Rica, he recently gained attention for his swordfish catch in the Florida Keys. Supported by his encouraging parents, Colby, currently pursuing a degree at Auburn University in business and/or marine biology, values hard work and education. His fishing experience has taught him the importance of patience, staying in the moment, and being prepared for anything.

AmbassadorAlexandra Spring

Alexandra Spring is a Florida native and has always had a passion for fishing. She caught her first fish at the age of three and since then has completely submerged herself in all things fishing. From fishing offshore to inshore, fly fishing, and spearfishing – she does it all. She’s pretty much as hardcore of a recreational angler as they come. Recently, Alex obtained three IGFA World Records for Gag Grouper on fly and is looking forward to breaking a few more.

Alex owns a digital marketing agency called Spring Media. Check it out here, and be sure to follow Alex on Instagram, TikTok and on YouTube.
