Capt. Dick Loupe was the host of the Southern Outdoorsman TV fishing show, which aired out of Knoxville, TN in the late 1980's. He is an expert fisherman, specializing in trophy largemouth bass in Florida since 1989. He first learned fishing from his Dad and to respect the outdoors and what it has to offer. He has been fishing all over the country for trophy bass since 1962, but now makes his home on Lake Walk-in-Water (one of the Kissimmee Chain of Lakes) employing a network of only the best bass fishing guides.
He also designed the rod holders and is the managing partner of Katydid Fishing Products, LLC. In addition he is a consultant for the local tackle shop.
