Kevin Workman "Dark Archer"
No-one is sure about the beginnings of the one they call the 'Dark Archer'. Military records indicate he spent time as a paratrooper but his past is largely a mystery. He became known in outdoor circles for his secretive fishing and strange techniques. He was known to hunt and fish with a tabby cat and there were whispers he caught and released state record fish from time to time. He has since gone public with his knowledge but still is a secretive and quiet man, speaking softly behind his beard.
Joshua WorkmanCabela's Fishing Team | Picasso Lures Pro Staff
Josh is the second-oldest brother in the Workman trio. He spent much of his youth in Mexico where he earned a heavy satchel of pesos betting on snake races. Josh later migrated north with his winnings and began fishing the pro bass circuits. One day he dropped a new rod overboard during a tournament and then in a fit of rage destroyed his own boat. He adopted kayak fishing for a sense of peace and in his quest he has visited several temples where he has relied on meditation to help him visualize tournament winning presentations.

Also known for his huckleberry style of fishing shirtless and shoeless … his charm will only last until skin cancer and frostbite have aged him. Despite his carefree ways the boy catches beastly fish in the kayak. He is known around the world for catching the largest blue catfish to be landed in a kayak.
Clark DawsonCartel Negotiator
Clark was found on a doorstep in an Amish Community somewhere in Harrison County, Missouri. The Amish couple that found him believed him to be some sort of prophet but as Clark grew older, his interests were exclusive to playing the violin and eating various cheeses. As a teenager, Clark was booted from the the community after stealing a motorcycle and driving to the supermarket for some brie. He began traveling the world in search of the next best cheese and while in Iceland he caught a trout on a tiny chunk of goat cheese. His passion for fishing and eating cheese have remained intertwined since and just as he finds the best cheese he also has a knack for finding big fish.

Jennifer Dee Dawson
Jen Dawson is Clark's better half. The two of them met on a cliff diving adventure in Australia. Jen is known for her skills both behind a camera and behind a gun. She is usually armed and is known to be a skilled markswoman…with her .44 magnum. Even though she shoots pictures and bullets she also catches big fish. It is debated she is strong competition to her husband on the water. There has been gossip that Jen may be a direct descendant of Jerry Garcia, possibly even his daughter.
Tom FisherWise Elder
Tom Fisher is an elder in the group. He has served as an advisor and strategic coordinator for the CCKA. He edifies the group with his eclectic tastes in wine and walleye cheeks. It is rumored Tom set a line class record with a fly rod shortly after being visited by the ghost of his distant relation, Daniel Boone. He is sometimes haunted by visions of the knife wielding legend as he fishes in the early morning mist. He credits his ability to catch monster fish to instincts inherited through his bloodline … specifically Boone. Tom's own oversized blade, a historic piece passed through generations was used in the group's infamous fireside blood bond ritual.
