Back in 2013, Ryan Leverington was going to college, studying criminal justice. A life-long lover of the great outdoors, especially hunting and fishing, he became aware of Angling Unlimited. He immediately applied for a deckhand position and started with AU in 2013. Lev earned a captain’s license in the winter of 2015. That season he mainly deckhanded but did run a few trips as captain. AU didn’t have any vacancies at the helm in 2016, so Lev ran a boat for another Sitka based operation for three years.
With the departure of the Cobrah in 2018, we had an opening for Lev. We made the offer and he jumped at it. We love the idea of having him back because he knows the AU culture and expectations. He’s a smart fisherman and he values his relationships with the customers. He’s a pro and, like all good fisherman, he’s looking to learn something new every day he’s on the water.
After two seasons at the helm of the Loon, Lev is as excited as ever for the upcoming 2021 season. Come May, Lev will be itching to get back on the water and share the gorgeous waters and scenery Sitka has to offer, as well as everything that comes with it, with his customers, rookies and veterans alike!
