Todd Corayer is a life-long fisherman and hunter who lives not far from Rhode Island’s Saugatucket River with his lovely wife, who supports his fishing mainly to get him out of the house, and a young son who regularly, often annoyingly, catches more fish than him.
His work has appeared in The Double Gun Journal, On The Water Magazine, The Fisherman, The Island Crier and very often in the wonderful RISAA Newsletter. He writes a weekly column, Fish Wrap, for the Southern RI Newspapers family which can be read from Charlestown to Woonsocket. He also writes a monthly fishing column for The Shore Times and a monthly column in SO Rhode Island magazine about the many characters living on Block Island. His work has covered how to fish the south side of Block Island, fly fishing for Atlantic salmon in up-state Maine, the best fall freshwater fishing in Rhode Island, how to not catch steelhead in upstate New York, small mouth bass fishing on the Penobscot River, some small and creepy glass monster things, how much people from New Jersey drive him crazy, lots of detail on our critical and really cool forage fishes like river herring and whatever else might come across the bow. It’s also safe to assume sarcasm plays a major role in my, I mean, his work. That’s a lot.
Todd is available for gear or product reviews, destination stories (please) and for all things fishing and hunting. His wife just wants him out of the house.
