Rod Teehan has been writing feature articles for The Fisherman since 1979. In September, 1983, he became a field editor and began the New England edition’s Inland Report. He is the author of two books: Largemouth Bass Fishing (1986) and To Catch a Largemouth (1994). His material has also been published in Outdoor Life, In-Fisherman, Fishing Facts, Trout, Bassin’, and numerous regional periodicals. Rod taught English in public schools for thirty-two years and retired from teaching in 2001.

An avid freshwater and saltwater angler, Rod has caught a wide variety of species from carp in the Connecticut River to tarpon at Boca Grande. Among his favorite fishing sites are Quabbin Reservoir in west central Massachusetts; Barnstable Harbor and the Brewster Flats on Cape Cod; and Lemon Bay in Englewood, Florida. Among his favorite targets are bronzebacks, bucketmouths, pike, stripers, and snook.

Among Rod's fishing accomplishments are a 52.8-pound striped bass that placed second in state in the Schaefer Salt Water Fishing Contest and first in state in The Fisherman Salt Water Fishing Contest back in 1977. In 1984, his 8-pound, 14-ounce largemouth was the largest entered in The Fisherman/Genesee contest. Two years later he set a National Fresh Water Fishing Hall of Fame line class world record with a 26-pound, 9-ounce northern pike. He tied an I.G.F.A. line class world record with a 6-pound, 14-ounce chain pickerel just one year latter.
