David Tyroch

David has been bass fishing for as long as he can remember and has fallen in love with the sport. David and Alex Finch have known each other since their time together fishing on the Texas A&M Aggie Anglers college fishing team, and he has been on the Finch Nasty Pro Staff since the Company’s products first went on sale to the public. David is currently the Vice President of the Katy Bassmasters bass club and fishes the Texas BASS Nation Southeast Trail as well as its team division. David is a fairly adaptable fisherman, but he prefers to power fish anywhere from 1-10 feet of water. David knows that not all baits are created the same and that goes for all lures of the Finch Nasty product line: “There are special features that make these baits my preferred go to when I want to use a bladed jig, a football jig or a flipping jig especially. The difference is noticeable, and I would be happy to talk to you about my experiences with these lures any chance I could get.”
