Mitch Flowers (aka Catfish Mitch)
Mitch Flowers (aka CatfishMitch), born and raised in West Monroe, Louisiana, grew up with the rivers and bayous as his playground. Here is where long beards aren’t a “fashion” statement, but a way of life for a hunter/fisherman. Mitch prides himself on being what folks in the south call a “river rat” as he fishes mainly with hoop nets, yo-yo’s & jugs. Hates rudeness in a man….won’t tolerate it. People are drawn to his cooking, his big personality, his way of making people laugh & his genuine spirit. Love of Family, 4-Wheel Drives, NASCAR, Country Music & Cooking Southern Comfort Foods make Mitch an authentic God fearing “wild eyed southern boy”…. In what should be a clash of cultures, the folks of south Texas have embraced Mitch and his son Ryder as they work to help the quality of wildlife habitat (of course, having a little bit of good ole southern fried fun at the same time).
Well the apple didn’t fall too far from the tree in the Flowers Household….. Ryder Flowers, Mitch’s youngest son, was also born and raised in West Monroe, Louisiana. Always ready to bring people to the family table, Ryder found tons of friends who benefited in the bounty from hunting and fishing…..Nobody ever left the house hungry. Going muddin’ on a 4-wheeler or 4-wheel drive truck makes the trip to fishing holes or hunting spots as much fun as the actual hunt itself. Activities on the river weren’t limited to just fishing—-skiing, tubing and just about any kind of “redneck” sport was made up on the spot with Ryder at the helm of the fun. In a culture where civility & chivalry aren’t seen much, Ryder still says “ma’am and sir” & holds the door open for a woman or old folks. Being diagnosed with Juvenile Diabetes as a young boy didn’t slow Ryder down when he played High School football for an 8 time state championship team, but it has given him an incentive to cherish his Family, his Faith & make every day count.
Todd’s affinity for the outdoors began when he was young, exploring the vast wilderness of various ranches in central Texas. Although the property lines never changed, the adventures on the familiar ranch terrain varied with each sunrise.
These constant opportunities for excitement only lured Todd further into the enchanting world that nature has to offer. As he grew up, he swiftly became a well known horse tamer and hunting dog trainer, the experience of which solidified and enhanced his respect and adoration for all animals and wildlife.
When he is able to find time away from training horses, dogs, and maintaining his ranch on the outskirts of Austin, Todd relaxes by free diving, sailing on Lake Travis and spending time with his beloved animals.
