Woods and Water

Taylor Metz has been hunting and fishing since the age of 4 and enjoys every minute she gets to spend outdoors. Taylor was a competitive NASP archer and since 2018 she has been featured in Shimano Fishing’s marketing campaigns for the SLX rod and reel series. Also in 2018, Taylor began to co-host the weekly Woods and Water SC radio show with her dad. Taylor also represents Shimano Fishing and AFTCO at various events and on social media.

Roger Metz grew up in rural South Carolina, fishing with his grandaddy and quail hunting with his neighbor. Since those early days, being in the outdoors became a way of life and not just a pastime. Hunting, hiking, camping, and fishing has taken Roger across the US, to Mexico and Canada, and all the way north to Alaska. He started his weekly outdoor radio show Woods and Water SC in 2014 to share his love of the outdoors and encourage others to get out there.

Roger and Taylor are both members of SEOPA (Southeastern Outdoor Press Association) and those media credentials give them access to outdoor events and conferences both here in SC and throughout the US.
