When time allows, he enjoys fishing in competitive Bass, Salmon, Tuna and Marlin Tournaments Globally. Cody is active with several conservation groups and uses his degree in Fluvial Geomorphology not only in his outdoor pursuits but with these groups to better hunting and angling opportunities nationally.
Education is at the forefront for Cody and Day One Outdoors. Because his family did not fish or hunt, Cody learned through experience, guides, tackle shops and books to become successful in the field and on the water. Today, through guiding his clients, Seminars, “Day One Outdoors” TV and other educational projects…Cody’s goal is to give back to those who helped him along the way and encourage the next generation to enjoy the Outdoors.
One of the opportunities the outdoor industry has afforded him, was the chance to participate in “Operation Catch Fish.” This USO tour occurred in Iraq and Kuwait during Operation Iraqi Freedom to entertain our deployed soldiers. Cody was fortunate enough to be asked to come along for two of these tours. Operation Catch Fish traveled across the war-torn Middle East with a mission to support our troops. The culmination of each tour ended with a fishing tournament held for the Soldiers in the middle of Baghdad at camp Victory. Thousands of Soldiers had the opportunity to lay down their weapons, pick up a fishing rod and have some semblance of home while catching fish. Supporting our troops in Iraq and Kuwait will always be a memory never forgotten. To this day, Cody and Day One Outdoors works with Active Duty and Veteran Soldiers through “Home w/ Heroes” ; a group dedicated to taking those whom have served us on the home-front, out Fishing and Hunting to enjoy the Outdoors!
