My name is Richard Geldard. I am a Providence public school teacher entering my 25th year. I have 2 children of whom I am extremely proud. In High School I played 3 Varsity sports and received awards in all three. I mention this only because Fibromyalgia has made athletics nearly impossible. I have loved to fish since I was about four, and through my dad's teachings consider myself knowledgeable in a variety of areas. The support of all of my family members has enabled me to continue pursuing my love of fishing. I am at total peace when venturing outdoors. It was also my childhood dream to be on the Bassmaster or FLW tournament trail!
