I saw this on another forum. It’s a long read so settle in. Draw your own conclusions.

Honestly never met a cat fisherman who was an upstanding guy. Possibly Sam Bennett, but I would call him a multi species angler over a cat fisherman. #profiling

That is a long read but very interesting. That there is a professional con man.

Glad to see a piece of shit like this get his. What a loser. Guy has conned hundreds of thousands of dollars out of the hands of others, and is still walking the streets... amazing.

Everything is gone. Mike Long Outdoors on Facebook, as well as his Mike Long Outdoors website. Serves the bastard right. Airrus rods also pulled his sponsorship, and donated the entire rest of their inventory of his rods to a kids fishing charity.

Interesting to read how far this guy was able to go with this crap with all the red flags along the way.

I'm retired too but this was too f'ing long. Scanned it - glad the MF got caught. Really shakes your faith in your fellow man. Nothing is worth this sort of crap.

good read. I am not surprised, when money starts getting involved people do stupid things.
