Blace Hutchens was raised in the Appalachian Mountains of West Virginia. Growing up in rural America on an 81 acre farm. It didn’t take him long to fall in love with the outdoors. Fishing the farm pond for Crappie, Largemouth Bass, and Catfish any chance he could. As he grew older his obsession for fishing grew more intense. His main focus then and now is the river chameleon, his all time favorite species the Smallmouth Bass. Although he never misses a chance to take advantage of the other abundant angling opportunities and species in the Mountain State’s waters.
Blace currently resides in the small town of Hinton, WV. It is the river rich area that includes both the Greenbrier River and the world renowned New River. Known for the world class whitewater rafting and amazing Smallmouth habitat. He practically has that same whitewater running through his veins. He gets his thrill by chasing river Smallmouth in the JK Coosa. The river is where he finds peace, solitude, and a connection with nature. He is a Jackson Kayak enthusiast, amateur photographer, and a member of the Mountain State Kayak Anglers.
Fishing is fun, but Family comes first. He is a father of two and the husband of a hard working wife. He enjoys the every day life with his wife and two children. He and his family love to partake in all the vibrant sights, sounds, and outdoor activities that West Virginia has to offer. Encouraging all to get outside and enjoy life.
