Her passion for the outdoors was ignited at a young age due in large part to her experiences fishing on the glacial lakes of the Upper Peninsula of Michigan with her grandfather.
Hanson’s written work has appeared in publications such as Salt Water Sportsman Magazine, BoatUS Magazine, and USA Today Hunt & Fish. She is also a weekly contract blogger for TakeMeFishing.org.
Her speaking engagements include the Salt Water Sportsman National Seminar Series with George Poveromo and as the host of Reel Talk Radio on ESPN in Southwest Florida. She also holds quarterly fishing clinics for women with a focus on freshwater techniques and conservation.
When she’s not guiding clients on the lakes and canals of Southwest Florida, Debbie can be found lending angling support and encouragement to women of all ages. She has traveled to countries such as Australia, New Zealand, and Africa to further her quest for knowledge while connecting with anglers from across the world.
