I live in Rapid City in the beautiful Black Hills of South Dakota. I'm an avid outdoorsman and love hiking, fishing, and hunting, but my absolute outdoor passion is ice fishing. I believe that we are stewards of the outdoors and need to protect our fishing resources for future generations to enjoy so I have partnered with several businesses in the fishing industry who believe this as well, including RLVNT. I volunteer to lead group ice fishing outings for our airmen and women stationed at Ellsworth Air Force Base here in Rapid City as well as with a regional veteran's organization called Casting Vets. As far as believing in a product, you can't get any better eyewear for the outdoors than with a pair of RLVNT glasses!
My name is Shaun Cox. I currently live in Big Lake MN. I was born in Illinois where I was brought outdoors, fishing and hunting at a very young age. At the age of 12 my father moved to northern Wisconsin where my love for the outdoors continued to grow. Fast forward 15 years and you'd find me moving to Ottertail/Becker County Minnesota area. That's where my love for ice fishing continued to grow yearly until this very date. I have fished all over the Midwest but my love for Minnesota's lakes, rivers and woods will keep me here for life. I am beyond happy to represent the RLVNT LIFE and also cannot wait to meet all of you and continue to help this brand grow!
Ryan Rose grew up in rural Gaylord, Minnesota and had a passion for fishing all his life, ever since his family vacation to the Black Duck area, Big Panfish and Northern Pike, were his favorite to catch.

Ryan is married to Whitley where they have two children, a boy named Mckoy that’s 4 years old, and a 2 year old girl named Kohyn.

My name is Caleb Wistad. Growing up in the small town of Spooner, WI, my upbringing was steeped in the outdoor experience. Ever since I could follow my dad around through the woods or the water, I have been obsessed with fishing, hunting and trapping. I still live here in Northwest Wisconsin with my lovely wife Morgan and 8-year-old son Jackson. I fish both open water and on the ice in such places as the Great Lakes, the Mississippi River and many inland lakes, streams, rivers and reservoirs, annually targeting over 30 different species of fish here in Wisconsin. I am committed to discovering new and unique ways to efficiently and consistently put patterns together to catch more fish.

I started a tackle company “Mossy Creek Tackle” and make hand poured plastics and rods. In the fall I enjoy chasing waterfowl with my Dog, Saige, sitting in the deer stand or walking the fields for pheasants.
Hello my name is Aidan Hansen I’m 22 and originally from Wisconsin, moved up to Saint Cloud to fish for the SCSU bass team here in Minnesota and I’m chasing the dream to make it on tour!
I've spent my entire life outdoors and exploring around and on Lake Minnetonka. This truly instilled a passion for anything outdoors and the lake life. Fast forward to buying my first boat and the following year joining a Ice Fishing league with a buddy. I joined just so I was committed to getting out a few times a winter but something clicked. Our first tournament showed me what true anglers are capable of catching. On that day I saw a 2lb crappie and a few 1.5 lbers too. I continue to fish in Ultimate Panfish League all winter, and a few open water tournaments as well. I have been blessed with great friendships and mentoring in the industry, so I am forever going to pay it forward.
My name is Amy Munsinger and I am enjoying life in the outdoors. Living in Minnesota gives me lots of opportunities for bass fishing on the open water, hunting geese & green necks in the fall and targeting multi species on the hard water in the winter months. My favorite RLVNT glasses are my scout frames with the freshwater green and the brown concealment lens. I wear them not only on the water, in the blind and when I ride my motorcycle too. Tight lines….
I live with my family about 15 mins south of Mille Lacs Lake. I love all things outdoors but my addiction is fishing. Mainly hard water but I am up for any adventure. I am super addicted to the amazing RLVNT shades. I have multiple pairs and can not WAIT for the new women’s frames to come out!
I was born and raised in St.Paul the majority of my life, as a youngster we used to go fishing and camping every weekend on little carnelian near Stillwater. Unfortunately at a young age my father passed away, after that I didn’t get into the outdoors very often until I was about 28 years old and around 4 years after I met my wife. Fast forward 4 years and I grinded out 1000 subscribers on YouTube, gained over 10k followers on Instagram and have made a ton of new friends within the fishing industry. Let’s not forget the small boat group I put together called tiny boats of Minnesota.
My love & passion for the outdoors started at a very young age. With the help of my father always taking me camping, hunting & fishing. As I grew older my passion for fishing grew stronger which led me to competing in local bass tournaments & FLW events. But, my biggest passion is ice fishing predominantly chasing giant perch! My other passion is working with the industries top companies and promoting products I truly believe in.
My name is Matthew Stewart. I hale from the great Northern Wisconsin twin ports area! I was introduced to the outdoors when I was about 5 years old by my uncle and grandfather and have been “hooked" ever since! My specialty is walleye and crappie, well…any species is a bonus to me. I have one son who loves to fish with me on my boat and a springer spaniel pup. I am very honored to be representing the best sunglass company on the market! RLVNT!!
My name is Tyler Ray and I live in Windsor CO. Originally from southeast NE. My passion for the outdoors started at a very young age. Living near a small creek, fishing was a daily adventure. By the time high school was out, fishing was the only thing I wanted to do. Fast forward 20 years and I’m now blessed to represent some of the top brands in the outdoor industry. Helping others peruse their dreams in the outdoors is a very rewarding feeling. The futures so bright I have to wear RLVNT shades!
I grew up in central Minnesota with a love for the outdoors. In 2015 our family moved to the Mille lacs lake area and now call that our forever home. This area has always been near and dear to my heart. It offers great opportunities for hunting and fishing of all kinds. I spend my time on the lake fishing if I’m not working. If the fish aren’t hitting I run around doing winter sports shows for Clam, RLVNT and Fish House 360 market place. Sharing my love for the outdoors by networking and providing outdoor experiences to the young and less able are my most cherished times (Outside of Family time of course). A husband and father of 3 keeps me busy and the bait bill high!
My name is Casey Wagner. I live in Rice, MN. The outdoors have been a passion of mine since I was a young kid. I have traveled the country hunting and fishing, but Minnesota always calls me home. The last couple of years I have enjoyed guiding for a variety of game. To see peoples excitement when they get what they are after is amazing. I look forward to pass my passion and knowledge on to my kids. Watching the next generation learn the outdoors is what it’s all about. Remember to make memories not excuses!

Scott is a multi-species angler, although his specialized species is: Walleye, Crappie and Sunfish. While catching fish is a top priority when guiding clients, Scott wants to make each trip a learning experience to ensure that his clients leave with more than just fish in their cooler, but they leave with tips and techniques that will put more fish in their boat long after the end of their guide trip.

Chad Harmon, born and raised in SE Ohio.
Hello all! I run Ohio Muskie Guide Service Ohiomuskie.com. I've been fishing for these tooth critters since I was 12 years old and have been addicted to catching them since. I love to put clients, friends and especially my two kids on catching these fish! There's nothing more enjoyable than watching someone catch their first trophy musky. Using the Chameleon technology from RLVNT allows me to pick out a following musky behind my bait with ease cutting through the glare on the water and execute a figure 8 to get them to commit boat-side. I love to spend time with my family outdoors enjoying the spectacular things the good Lord made for us to enjoy!
I live on Clearwater Lake in Annandale MN and I enjoy fishing with as many anglers as I possibly can who share this great passion! In addition, I am a competitive angler for the MN Bass Tour and a co-angler for the Prior Lake Hooksetters. I also dabble in some multi-species tournaments both ice and open water. Generally, when I’m not fishing… oh wait, I’m always fishing. 😉
My name is Cody Shaw; I’m a Bass and Ice fishing tournament angler. I currently live in a little rural community called Rosendale WI, with my beautiful wife and daughter. I’ve been an avid outdoorsman ever since I was a young boy. Both my father and step father have played a huge role in fueling the fire that burns inside me today. I started competing in small club bass tournaments when I was 12, and haven’t looked back since. My drive and passion to compete is still the same as that young 12 year old boy. I can not wait to continue chasing my dreams, especially with the support of great companies like RLVNT!
My name is Trigg Roach owner of TR Guide Service for the lakes of Crow Wing County MN.
I’ve been wanting to be a fishing guide ever since I was 10 years old. When I was camping with my family, there was a guy fishing at the end of the dock and my dad told me I should take him out fishing, so I did. We went out in my 12’ Lund and fished in a little bay catching Blue Gills. I made my first $20. Ever since that day I knew I wanted to be a guide. Growing up, I fished at the local dam catching walleyes and on the smaller lakes fishing for anything that would bite, honing my skills, to fulfill my life- long dream of being a fishing guide. In 2018, I started TR Guide Service. I love teaching folks how to enhance their fishing skills. Seeing them catch fish drives me to be a better fisherman.
