Meet Steven Hayden - Army Special Forces officer

I have been lucky to have sponsors in the past, however, as an Army officer deployments overseas, to include Iraq and Afghanistan, have cost me sponsors and missed tournaments and championships.  I am lucky to have friends like Randy Allen, an Elite Series Pro and family friend,  and Morgan McCain of McCain Fishing who have helped me with my fishing.  I am hoping that with my retirement and more time to devote to fishing I will be able to help more companies sell their products and pick up sponsors to help me fish.
