He is also the former associate publisher of EQUUS and Polo magazines, former director of operations of the VLS division of IMS Health, and former web marketing manager for RPM International.

A prolific writer, Johnny has bylines in Outdoor Life, Sporting Classics, The Drake, Strung, and is the former associate editor at Hatch Magazine as well as former managing editor of ABOUT. Johnny calls the River Valley and southern Ozarks of Arkansas home. Besides the local smallmouth and spotted bass, he is also obsessive about whitetail deer, wild turkeys, and lounging in lonesome places.

He’s written about fly fishing for over a decade with bylines appearing in Gray’s Sporting Journal, Field & Stream, American Angler, Hatch Magazine, Trout Magazine, and other local and national publications.
