Shannon Drawe is a professional photographer and writer who spends a lot of time covering fishing and events related to fishing throughout Texas. He graduated from the University of North Texas with a degree in photojournalism and has been a professional photographer since 1987.
Shannon is excited to be with Fishing’s Future, and enjoys bringing the message of what we are all about to the masses. “I am fortunate to be a part of something that has such universal need and potential and can’t wait to see what the future brings,” he said.
Currently, Shannon lives and works from Denton, Texas, but regularly goes on the road to do outdoor related writing for magazines and blogs. “It’s a brand new decade, and it looks like I will be writing much more to compliment my outdoor photography,” he said. His writing and photography appears regularly in the Lone Star Outdoor News, and he has also had images published recently in Southwest Fly Fishing magazine, CCA’s Currents, and other national and state publications.
Virtually all his spare time is taken up with learning more about the art and science of fly fishing, as well as the cultural aspects that make fly fishing unique among all the types of fishing that are out there. Although he is a relative newcomer to fly fishing, his roots in fishing go all the way back to the Lower Laguna Madre and spans many decades.
