> Eric Atkins


Profession: Aerospace Engineer, Pro Angler & Jackson Kayak Fishing Team



My Story: Whether it’s a flowing stream, alligator-filled swamp, or a massive reservoir lake, this adventurer can be found stalking all kinds of wild waters for trophy fish. Eric is a tournament angler and photographer in Huntsville, Alabama. His photographs have been used by GoPro, Fox Sports Outdoors, as well as fishing industry magazines and websites. After being a top angler on the River Bassin Tournament Trail in 2014, Eric worked to form a local tournament trail in 2015 for anglers who were unable to travel all over the US to fish.

His motto is “find space”. An engineer by day, this outdoorsman reminds others that space exploration can be done by experiencing the natural resources available to all of us on our precious Earth. Go find your space.

The Red Fox ROVER allows Eric to make phone calls and play music in the wild waters he fishes.Playing on his ROVER: St. Paul and the Broken Bones, Mutemath, Red Hot Chili Peppers.
