Willis "Kubie" Brown Willis "Kubie" Brown is a writer for the Loadout Room as well as a freelance writer for several small publications. He also works as professional fishing and hunting guide working primarily in Southwestern Montana. Kubie's love of the outdoors has led him to explore much of North and South America, where he spends most of his time driving and sleeping in beat-up Toyota 4 runner, in-between long jaunts of hiking, camping, hunting, and perhaps his greatest passion, fly fishing. Kubie attended Southern Vermont College where he mostly played rugby and studied literature before receiving his B.A in Creative Writing. When he's not out in the field doing what he loves, Kubie spends most of his free time tying flies, sketching, rock climbing, cross country skiing, and sampling different varieties of whiskey. He runs his own fly fishing blog called Fertile Waters Media which can be found at www.fertilewatersmedia.com. His Instagram is also available at kubiebrown_fertilewaters.
