Bryan Lynch grew up in the Midwest state of Iowa, where the state slogan is “Fields of Opportunity.” He spent most of his life walking those fields as an avid hunter and fisherman. It was there as a young boy that he learned the value of having a quality knife when his dad gave him a Swiss Army Knife. That first knife sparked a lifelong journey, although some might call it an obsession, into the world of knives, the outdoors, and the gear that is used. Now living in Illinois, he uses his experiences and interests to write about emergency preparedness techniques, survival situations, and gear reviews.
The subtitle 101 Tips, Tricks & Uses may be an understatement for all Lynch’s teachings on first aid, camping, cooking, fishing—basically all the survival skills you hope to never need.
