John Stygler Bio

John is a third generation sport fisherman whose passion for fishing has gone on since the age of four.  He has fished up and down the east coast for both salt and fresh water species.  His initial passion was for fresh water trout, fishing the creeks and streams of northern Maryland and southern Pennsylvania for over 20 years.  All the while this was just his apprenticeship on learning how to fish big shallow rivers.  During this time he entertained the idea of working in fishery management and received a bachelor’s degree to do so but life took him to supporting people with disabilities in non-profits and local government.  Over fifteen years ago, he was introduced to river smallmouth by a friend.   From that moment on he has become obsessed with learning how to catch river smallmouth.   He spends up to 80 days a year on the water with the majority of that time on the Susquehanna and Juniata Rivers.  He prides himself of looking for and learning new water on his own and using his knowledge and skills to locate “new” fish.  He is an avid spinnerbait fisherman and will say “you just can’t beat spinnerbait fish”.

John is a strong advocate for our fisheries in regards to their management and water quality.  His commitment is about educating and promoting conservation and improved environmental standards from a grassroots perspective.  He owns a lure company, Snagler Tackle Company www.snaglertackle.com and has several lines of spinnerbaits for river smallmouth, soft plastics and other tackle for smallmouth fishing and is always coming up with new ways to catch them.   Being a Guide allows him to teach what he has learned to more people and share his passion.

He resides in Lititz, PA with his beautiful and supportive wife, Christine and their daughter Sarah, who helps her Dad in his workshop.  He is a PA licensed fishing guide with commercial insurance and is certified in first aid/CPR.  He fishes out of a 17 1/2 foot Weld-Craft, Motorguide 109 and a Yamaha 60 jet.

Van Hurd Bio

Son of an archer (dad) and a professional wrestler (mother), Van Hurd has followed a career path that gives new meaning to “Cinderella Man.” His unconventional, hard-scrabble life includes a dollop of hard times with a comeback only Hollywood could script.

Hurd received his culinary degree from The Art Institute of Dallas in 2007. His ambition and drive earned him the top spot in his class. While finishing his degree, Hurd mastered the fundamentals of cooking and started looking for the next rung of the ladder.

He learned quickly how to cook under pressure while engaging in multiple cuisine styles.  Hurd earned a reputation for excellence at one of America’s top restaurants, Dallas’s fabled French Room.  His flawless execution and “cool” under pressure approach helped The French Room maintain its AAA Five Diamond designation.

Van then went straight to Hell… Hell’s Kitchen season #6, that is. Working beside celebrity Chef Gordan Ramsay, wowing him with his signature Foie Gras dish on the first episode and quickly becoming a fan favorite.  It was after this that Van relocated to Connecticut to continue his culinary career and eventually realizing his passion for open flame cooking.

Van found a position as the Executive Chef and Pitmaster of CT’s Taino Smokehouse.  It’s been there that he’s been mastering his control of flame and smoke, only to return to Hell again in 2017!  Hell’s Kitchen All Star’s Season 17! A call from L.A. sent him back to Gordan Ramsey for a hand-picked season of the best chefs’ in Hell’s Kitchen history.

With everything that Van has experienced along the way, he has now found himself cultivating a deeply rooted passion for the outdoors, obviously planted there by his father.  He’s grown more and more driven to fully explore the experience of true field to plate cooking.  Hurd is certainly no stranger to venison, duck, salmon, sea bass, and other game, but he feels there’s still something missing in those dishes.  Something that can only be found within its natural harvest from the wild … and Field to Fire cooking is now his next mission!

V3 Gun Dogs Bio

Jeremy Cormier found his passion for dogs at a young age while helping a family friend with his dog training business. This family friend, Sal Sala, was more of a father figure for Jeremy as he took Jeremy under his wing picking him up every Tuesday and Thursday to run dogs in South Windsor, CT. Jeremy learned the importance to a well rounded dog from the kennel to field as he helped round up the dogs, birds, and training equipment. Through these experiences Jeremy knew one day he wanted his own dog and to fully train the dog with minimal assistance. Jeremy took on this endeavor with his first dog, Jameson, a Vizsla out of Szizlin’ Vizsla’s in Marlborough, CT. Jameson taught Jeremy the highs and lows of dog training which brought Jeremy to where he is today.

Jeremy continued his quest through dog training while aiding with local police departments in training their K9 units. Jeremy’s knowledge in dogs goes beyond the normal obedience and gun dog training. With multiple facets of training, Jeremy can tailor the training to the owner and dogs needs.

Jeremy’s passion drives him to succeed in making a well rounded dog that anyone can enjoy at home and in the field.
