Before becoming the Creative Director for BD Outdoors, Derek Redwine founded and operated the web development and design firm BoldWater® for more than 16 years. Derek has an extensive fishing resume, and began his career working as a mate on various charter boats based out of central Florida. He started fishing the Bahamas at an early age with his father, and has traveled to some of the world’s best fishing locations including Venezuela, Costa Rica, Mexico, Nova Scotia, Alaska and the Caribbean. He’s appeared in many magazines over the years and has been a guest on the television show Spanish Fly with his close friend the late Jose Wejebe.
At BD Outdoors, Derek is able to combine his passion for fishing with his artistic designs. “As a graphic artist, I think my best attribute is visually explaining a place, product or experience to someone,” Derek says.
Derek lives in Merritt Island, Florida, with his wife Cory and son Alden where they spend countless hours fishing, exploring and creating marine art in different forms together.
