Cody Roswick is writing a new chapter in his love of the outdoors. From Valley City, North Dakota, Roswick has been an integral player in the fishing and marine industries for two decades. Now, he is directing his passion to one-on-one guiding.
His full-service fishing and hunting guide business, Fin-Hunters, will operate in central and eastern North Dakota and the Glacial Lakes of northeastern South Dakota. As a member of the famous Perch Patrol, he will also be a mainstay on Devils Lake. "The fishing is fantastic in North Dakota," he said.
"I specialize in education while on the ice or open water," Roswick said, "Every person, from novice to expert deserves my best effort, and with more than 500 guide trips under my belt, I look forward to providing more memories." He can handle large groups, corporate outings, families or individuals, with all equipment provided.

Working a broad swath of states in the middle of the country, he was responsible for marketing, sales training, event planning for two dozen employees, management of more than 100 professional anglers, product development, field testing and media relations.
