My name is Bob Hoffman, and one of my greatest passions is fishing.
From a young age, I learned about this thrilling sport and pastime from my father, and then in teaching it to my kids in turn, I felt a deep connection with my family that runs through generations.
And for as long as I can remember, I wanted to share this powerfully emotive experience with the world.
I began to use my knowledge to write in-depth gear reviews, how-to guides, and top tips to help readers become better anglers, spend more time outside, and reconnect with nature – and their loved ones.
Just as my father did with me.
And so, sometime circa 2018, Bonfire Bob was born!
What’s it All About?
Even though the website started as a carp-fishing-only… On these pages, you’ll find a vast and varied selection of articles on the subject of fishing.
There are articles on the best fishing rods and reels, tackle and gear, clothing and apparel, boats and floats, and everything in between.
And it’s all written by experienced outdoor enthusiasts – so you know you’re getting the best advice from dedicated folks who have put the hours in – whether they’re on, in, or away from the water (temporarily, of course!)
Let’s take a look at the team.
Bonfire Bob – Who’s Who?
Since those early days, Bonfire Bob has grown to develop a healthy readership worldwide, and – as it has become more work for one man alone – BB has attracted the talents of a number of knowledgeable writers and staff who all share the same passion for the great outdoors.
This Fantastic Four group isn’t the only fishing enthusiasts that write all content on here. From time to time when our combined knowledge reaches its limits, we reach out to other experts in sub-fields of fishing, e.g., fly fishing, kayaking, bowfishing, ice fishing, etc.
