BassProSites_AaronOlsen_Bio375.jpgMeet Aaron

The loves in my life are family and fishing. My family includes my wife of nine years and two children who I hope grow up to enjoy the outdoors as much as I do.

I grew up on a farm near a small town in northern Illinois.  My love for fishing started with small creeks and ponds spending time with my father and sister, as well as the occasional salmon fishing trip to northern Wisconsin with a neighbor. 

After graduating from Northwest Missouri State University I moved to Kansas City to enjoy the extended fishing season and pursue my dream as a tournament angler.  I have been fishing tournaments at the local and the regional level for 11 years.  I have been sharing my fishing knowledge with the general public for the last 3 years through seminars and tank demos at the Bass Pro Shops Outdoor World in Independence, MO.  Now with the help of Bass Pro Sites I am able to share my knowledge with even more people through the web.
