It was just recently when I mentioned to my spouse that I had seen a man on the side of the road contently sitting in a ditch with a fishing pole.
I wondered then as I do now, why? And I can only conclude that he needed to feed his family or his hunger for the sport of fishing. And no one knows better than Sakwinder Narwal, about feeding his hunger for the amazing passion he has for the sport of fishing.
Although Sakwinder Narwal may not officially be declared the greatest fisherman in the world, or be as world famous as Zyg Gregorek, the first recreational fisherman anywhere to catch all 27 species in the “royal slams” set by the International Game Fish Association (IGFA). In my opinion, Sak Narwal is a close second. He has one of the greatest loves for fishing any true fisherman could possibly have. Sak has been obsessed with fishing since he was a small boy. Sakwinder Narwal fishes just about every week and his voyages have taken him from Bristol Bay in Alaska where he chased the salmon, Dixon Lake where he fished for bass, the Florida Panhandle where he fished for Catfish, and Roscoe NY where he fished for brook trout. Sak Narwal has even fished for sharks in the waters off Montauk Point, on New York’s Long Island.
Though he loves fishing, Sakwinder Narwal is quick to say that it is the thrill of the hunt, not of the kill, that he enjoys. A strictly "catch and release" fisherman, Sak says, “There is nothing as relaxing and satisfying as catching fish on a beautiful day on a beautiful body of water.”
Sakwinder’s savvy business sense and entrepreneurship has afforded him the opportunity to be able to follow his passion around the country and around the globe. It is doubtful that I’d ever see Sakwinder fishing on the side of the road, but if his passion directs him there, who knows.
