Robin worked as an equipment operator in the logging business for 20 years. For the past 20 years he has worked on a potato farm.
In his time off he enjoys the outdoors hunting and fishing. Whitetail hunting is his passion along with teaching his grandchildren all he can about the outdoors.
In June of 2011, he was invited to attend a WWIA Summer Muskie Classic with a friend. He was very impressed with the men he met there. It is his wish to help anyway he can with the WWIA events.
