Experience

Danny Mooers is an experienced angler focused on making fishing accessible for all types of people. He has been fishing for most of his life in Minnesota, Canada, and in the Western United States. His approach to writing is from the lens of a person new to fishing and the outdoors. He doesn’t assume people have any background knowledge about fishing, hiking, or backpacking. The more understanding and approachable he sounds, the better the writing. Plus, he doesn't write about anything he doesn't understand. There are many qualified outdoor writers, so he leaves topics he doesn't understand to the experts. He uses his platform as a high school English teacher to teach kids about content creation and the outdoors. Outside of his professional life, he travels, mountain bikes, fly fishes, races in Ironmans, golfs, and spends time with friends and family. If he’s not outside and active, he’s watching sports or playing piano.

He also has a Master's Degree in Teacher Leadership. All degrees are from Dordt University in Sioux Center, IA. His extensive work in the world of education and writing gives him bountiful knowledge and experience to utilize.
