A knowledgeable and avid salmon and steelhead angler, Steve splits his time between instructional articles, journalistic pieces and the humorous stories contained in this book. Of note, his work appears monthly in Woods N Water News, Michigan's largest outdoors publication.

Steven's wit and descriptive style has quickly caught the attention of many readers and earned praise from fellow writers and editors. As an active promoter of Michigan's recreational opportunities, he is involved in a number of programs that encourage safe and ethical angling practices. Steve spends over 200 days a year on the water, and has been represented in Michigan's Master Angler awards program several times, gaining recognition for catching the largest Chinook salmon (catch and release) in the state two years in a row (2000, 2001)!

He lives in west Michigan with his wife, Stephenie Phelps. Stephenie is an accomplished photographer who shoots many of the photographs that appear in Steven's articles.
