MIKE CHAFFIN

Sweetwater, Oklahoma

A native of Oklahoma, Mike is a life long outdoors enthusiast, who enjoys all types of fishing. As a father of 4, he’s enjoyed sharing his love for fishing with his children, grandchildren, and several foster children that have been welcomed into the Chaffin home over the years.
