My name is Spencer Bauer.  I am a full-time science teacher, part-time wrestling coach, graduate student, and writer.  I grew up in southern Iowa, but my love for fishing has taken me across much of the central part of North America.  I've fished in Canada, Mexico, and most places in between.  If it has gills, I enjoy catching it.  I currently live in central Iowa and spend as much free time as I can justify fishing in the small streams that are so common across much of the state. 

If you ever see me, there is a good chance I will have my dog, Woody, with me.  Depending on the time of year, I might be listening to the Hawkeye football team or Chicago Cubs on the radio.  To me, spending time on the water is all about having fun and living life to the fullest.  This is the basis of my life and is what I'm trying to portrait in all of my writing here at River Certified.  

If you love flowing streams, big fish, and adventures on the water like I do, this is the place for you.
