Hope you've enjoyed checking out my page, The Tar Heel Outdoorsman.  I'm Robert Daniel.

I love anything that gets me outside---hiking, camping, sailing, fishing, hunting---but my two greatest outdoors passions are fly-fishing and duck hunting.  I am by no means an expert angler, nor am I an expert water-fowler, but I really get a kick out of writing about my time outdoors.  Out in the swamp or the woods or the salt marsh, or on the sound or the river.   

Growing up in both Wilson and Raleigh, NC, I'd consider myself a Southerner, a North Carolinian, but above all, an outdoorsman.  Ever since I can remember, I've been drawn to the beauty, the peacefulness, the refuge, and the unknown that is the outdoors.  I currently live in Edenton, NC, with my beautiful wife and our basset hounds.  

I attended Sweetwater Guide School during the summer of 2013, and guided at Smith Fork Ranch in Crawford Colorado for the 2014 season and additionally at  A Bar A Ranch in Encampment, Wyoming for the 2016 season.  After earning my USCG Captain's license in 2017, I also guided some light tackle and fly fishing trips in and around Wilmington, Wrightsville Beach, and Figure Eight Island, as well as an occasional trout fishing trip in the mountains.    

I'm a graduate of UNC Chapel Hill, finishing up with a History major and minors in Creative Writing and Spanish in the Professions.  I'm also a graduate of UNC School of Law.

Thanks for checking out my attempts at stringing some words together!  If you want to reach out, give me a shout below!
