There are some great quotes out there about the experience of going fishing. Check out these winners:

“Fishing is a discipline in the equality of men – for all men are equal before fish,”

~Author Unknown

“Fishing is not an escape from life, but often a deeper immersion into it,” 

~Harry Middleton

Or how about~

“Many of the most highly publicized events of my presidency are not nearly as memorable or significant in my life as fishing with my daddy,” 

~Jimmy Carter

Pretty great, huh?

Fishing continues to be one of the most popular pastimes in the United States. Popularity grew even more during the pandemic, which saw 55 million Americans taking to their local fishing pond, lake, river, or coastline to put their hooks in the water. It’s an activity that gets you into the great outdoors and, if you’re lucky, also lets you bring home dinner.

While fishing is a hobby for most people, it can also be a profession. Cody Ryan Greaney is a professional angler who spends a good part of the year out on the water and on the road traveling to tournaments across the country. Fishing for him started as a pastime and then moved into the professional space. He’s the host of the Outdoor Radio show in Texas, and he and his wife also run a ranch and livestock management company. 

And he’s now also a brand ambassador for Altrua HealthShare. He’s sharing his experience with Altrua HealthShare through his social media platforms and with the fishing community. 

“There’s nothing like being on the boat as the sun comes over the horizon and you can spend a moment to just admire it,” says Greaney. “We are constantly on the go between travels for bass tournaments around the country, business at home, and life with a kid. I’m thankful I found a healthcare option that fits my lifestyle at a cost that fits our family budget. Altrua HealthShare is the perfect option for us.”

“When I think of Cody, I see someone who has built his life according to his values and his unique gifts as an outdoorsman. He embodies the heart of what Altrua HealthShare is all about,” says Altrua HealthShare COO John Capezzuti. “The Altrua HealthShare family cares for one another, and we’re honored to be the healthcare solution for so many people just like Cody who want the freedom to live a life they love and to also make sure they’re taking care of themselves and their families. We knew he would be a great addition to our team.”

Cody’s example of living life according to what he loves is a great snapshot of why Altrua HelathShare is a great option for so many people. As the gig economy continues to grow, and as people are pursuing more than ever making their passions their professions, the need for flexible and customizable healthcare continues to grow.
