Meet Our Team
My name is Gary Malkin. I am 46 years old, married to my wife Chrisha. I currently am self-employed as a Gunsmith and finish Woodworker for the past 4 years. I am a retired Sergeant First Class from the U.S. Military (Army) with 23 years of active duty service as of February 2014. I live in Fayetteville NC pursuing my fishing career and lifelong dream.
I have learned in the military that you can’t take anything lightly. By this I mean, your drive in finishing the mission and finishing it on top. Whether the mission is big or small long or short, you finish it and finish it on top. I have taken this philosophy to what I feel is a whole new extreme in fishing. My goal in life is to win the BassMasters Classic and the FLW tour Championship, along with angler of the year in both. I believe I have the drive, willingness, dedication and complete commitment to be number ONE. With the right amount of time on the water and right equipment, I will achieve my goal.
My military background and experience has afforded me the opportunity to talk to a diverse military and civilian population about different products that I uses while I am fish. For example, FishStyx Rods, TRC Covers, Jewel Bait and Amphibia Sunglass are my sponsors. People see me using these products and it forms an impression with them. I can reach a large amount of untapped resources by endorsing the products I trust in to people I imprint while fishing
I have been associated with both professional and amateur competitions which are listed in my attached resume. My equipment includes a 2004 TR196 powered by a 200 Mercury engine and is transported by a 2017 Toyota Tundra.
In closing, I feel that I have a lot to learn as well as a lot to offer. I like talking to people in both small and large crowds. I feel that once I put my mind to something that I have the training, experience, willingness, dedication and drive to get anything accomplished. I will use this to achieve my goal in life and I would encourage you to come along for want will be an exciting ride.
