Chuck Woolery is more than just a legendary TV personality. Even though he’s hosted a number of game shows including Wheel of Fortune, Love Connection, The Dating Game, Greed and Lingo, his real passion is the outdoors, especially fishing.
Chuck grew up in Ashland, Kentucky. He began fishing at a very young age, and he hasn’t stopped since. He’s fished all over North America, from the Deep South to the wilds of Canada.
He’s spent much of his life searching for the best tools and techniques to make fishing even more enjoyable. Now he spends a lot of his time finding and testing new outdoor products for his company, many of which are featured on this site.
