Since Darien was three years old, fish and fishing have been a part of his life. His grandfather and mother taught him how to fish and be patient with the game and hobby. His drive for the sport has translated into the hobby of keeping freshwater, marine and reef aquariums off and on for the last 30 years. Fishing and keeping up with his 120-gallon reef are his relaxation outlets in today’s fast-paced lifestyle.
Whether he's crafting a complex reef system at home or troubleshooting an IT issue, Darien claims that having the patience to work through different options and solutions in order to accomplish a goal is a valuable thing. He's glad to have learned and remembered it throughout life. Fishing, he says, has helped provide him with that kind of patience.
