I am very pleased to announce that our own Derrek Stewart will be a regular contributor here at theBBZ.com. My goal with the BBZ was to build a website that is different not only in the information shared between members but a place that the members themselves can use to promote their passion for the great outdoors.
Derrek has brought something to the sport that has been overlooked for years and that is true "Photo Journalism" no where else will you find a place that you can truly look through the eyes of another individual as he travels to different locations. If the saying goes that "a picture can paint a thousand words" then sit back and enjoy this never ending novel. -- Bill Siemantel
My Name is Derrek Stewart; I’ve lived in southern California all my life, with the exception of the six years when I traveled the world with the United States Army Corp of Engineers. Currently, I live in Venice California.
Since I was a young boy I have always been in the outdoors and in addition to being at these travel destinations and sport fishing venues I have always had an eye to capture the scenes, the details, the story with my camera.
Whether it was camping,
Or trout fishing trips to the Sierras with my father.
I have been escaping to the outdoors all my life. My passion to angle and experience life in the great outdoors has taken me to many beautiful fish filled locations.
I will find a way; either behind a pilot,
or by boat to experience the beautiful waterways,
or an awe inspiring sunset.
Presently you can find me on the FLW tournament trail competing as a Co-angler.
In my spare time I have found a home at TheBBZ.com, it is here that I have been able to share what I have always done with my camera and truly express my storytelling to a wide audience without limitations.
As I continue to travel, join me and the members of the Big Bass Zone through my camera lens to these events and destinations across the country.
