SANTA ANA, Ca., March 30, 2023 – Ryan Griffin isn’t just a fisherman, he’s also a captain, a chef, a conservationist, and craftsman—aspiring to not only reach the pinnacle of each new venture but somehow forge new heights beyond it. This short film will give you an inside look at how Ryan catches, fillets and prepares fish utilizing some of his most popular recipes.
