Gayla Orrell is originally from West Texas and learned to love fishing from her father who was fishing every chance he got. She caught her first fish in an irrigation ditch on the back portion of her grandparents' farm outside of Live Oak, California when she was six years old. She used a worm hooked and hanging on a short bit of string tied to a little stick. Since then she has fished many wonderful spots including the Kenai River in Alaska where she caught a 36 pound King Salmon, the Gulf of Alaska and Cook Inlet where many halibut put up a good fight, and the Pacific Ocean where no fish was safe. On Lake Powell she has pulled up decent large and small mouth bass, striper, walleye, blue gill, channel cat, and crappie. She loves Lake Powell fishing and would like to share it with the world.
Wes Orrell, on the other hand, was born fishing. He grew up around Lake of the Ozarks in southern Missouri (there's a little more water there than in West Texas). He lived in Alaska for 17 years and took full advantage of the hunting and fishing opportunities there. He even got his pilot's license and an airplane with tundra tires so he could reach even the remotest of fishing holes. Fishing comes as natural to him as breathing.
Together, Gayla and Wes make a pretty good team. Wes tends to be a quiet guy, but Gayla is a little chatty. That's why he makes her drive the boat. Plus, she knows all the really good fishing spots.
