Ronnie Green is the charismatic host of A Fishing Story. A graduate of Texas Tech University, Ronnie was an all-American sprinter in college. He was an officer in the United States Marine Corps, and very successful in the medical device industry for many years. At five years old, he reeled in his first fish with his dad, a thrill not soon forgotten. Ronnie graduated to fishing with his great-grandmother who was an avid fisherwoman. He’s been consumed with fishing ever since. In addition, he has participated successfully with BASS, FLW, and ABA fishing circuits.
