Cohen is from Perry, Georgia, just south of the border between Georgia’s Coastal Plain and Piedmont regions. This is where he developed his affinity for fishing, spending many hours going after bass, brim, catfish and the likes on the lakes and ponds in middle Georgia. Cohen moved to coastal Georgia after college to take a position in fisheries biology with the Georgia Department of Natural Resources. He then earned a master’s degree in coastal biology with a focus on fisheries science, in which his thesis work focused on fisheries survey methodology and shark nursery habitat preferences. After graduate school Cohen landed a dream job at Little St. Simons Island as Naturalist Assistant Manager. He proceeded to fall in love with the art and excitement of fly fishing right on the banks of beautiful Mosquito Creek. He has since taken every opportunity to wet a fly and has covered many miles of LSSI’s tidal reaches in the process. Cohen is currently an environmental consultant, living in Brunswick, GA with his wife and daughter.
