Todd Corayer has lived in Rhode Island most of his life and has spent much of that time working, fishing, exploring and writing about the 400-mile coastline. Todd takes just as much pride in protecting the waterways through conservation and advocacy groups, as he does writing about and highlighting many of the great fishermen of Rhode Island.
