My entire life I have always been taught that nothing is out of reach if you truly want it and put everything you have into reaching that goal. Growing up in Central Arkansas I was surrounded by many outdoor opportunities which eventually led to the deep desire to eventually become a full time professional angler.
I recently graduated from the University of Central Arkansas with a degree in Environmental Biology. I have since began to focus all my efforts on the FLW Tour and Rayovac Series.
I have a deep support system consisting of family, friends, and a set of truly amazing companies. I pride myself on being humble and always learning from both the people I meet within the sport and the events themselves.
Like many people, I also realize the great importance of passing on the love of fishing to the next generation and enjoy taking any chance to spread the excitement of the outdoors to the younger generation, just as it was to me.
All this in hopes that others will later be given the same great outdoor opportunities. I look forward to the upcoming seasons where I can continue to work hard towards all of these goals, meet great fans, and enjoy the great competition that this sport offers!
I sincerely thank you for visiting my site and hope that you will continue to keep up throughout this upcoming year and many more to come. – Cody K.

Outdoorempire.com was created out of desire to specifically discuss outdoor recreation and sports gear. There is so much information available about fishing, hunting and camping as activities, but not about enhancing, maximizing the enjoyment we get from outdoors through proper gear.
Of course, there are countless reviews, “best product” lists, but they do not offer such a specific and detailed overview about choosing, using a piece of outdoor gear like we aim to do.
Our content will cover gear from every possible angle: what is needed for your activity, how to buy for each activity, specific product reviews and how to effectively use the gear after the purchase.
We carefully choose and select our authors not only on the basis of how much knowledge they have on given field, but also based on their ability to explain concepts clearly, pass on actionable and useful information and their overall writing style.
We hope to make your outdoor experience, whatever it may be, more enjoyable and satisfying.
I know some folks are a little bit anxious when they line up a fishing guide. They’re considering spending some hard earned discretionary income to get out on the water for a few hours with someone they’ve never met and hope that they’re not wasting their money!
Well, I promise that I will make every effort to give you professional service, to be ready to fish at the appointed time with rods, reels, bait and tackle ready to go and I’ll make sure that my boat is clean and in good working order.
I won’t ogle your wife, girlfriend or daughter or make inappropriate remarks, but I will treat them with respect and help as much as I possibly can to insure their enjoyment.
I’m humble enough to know that there are better anglers in this world than me and that I can learn, too. Not every one of my casts are on target and not every fish I land is perfectly done, so I won’t expect yours to be and I won’t degrade your abilities, but work with you to help make the trip a success.
I’ll work as hard as I can to provide a no-hassle experience and be open to any needs that you may have. The plan is to get you and your party out on the water, enjoy the scenery, have a good time and do our best to catch some fish!
