Wife Teresa C. W. Hall Son Michael W. Hall II Daughter Rebecca L. Hall

         Michael has just hit the bull’s eye for his major life goal of qualifying for the 2008 FLW Tour and
becoming a full time professional bass fisherman. By finishing 10th for the 2007 fishing year in the highly
competitive FLW STREN Northern series Michael has earned a priority entry as a professional in the 2008 FLW
Tour. Michael is excited and is looking forward for an opportunity to be a member of one of the FLW outdoor
sponsor fishing teams. Michael is ready to use his advanced public speaking and leadership skills to be a
spokesperson for sponsor team products. Michael will be bringing energy, enthusiasm, and excitement to help take
his sponsor fishing team to the next level of success. Michael will be an active ambassador for the future of the
sport of bass fishing across America.

         Michael’s recent fishing accomplishments include the 2007 STREN Northern series where Michael had a
9th place finish at the Potomac River in July catching over 50 lbs of bass and a 14th place finish on a very tough
Hudson River in September 2007. Michael has won a major FLW Outdoors tournament, the August 2005
EVERSTART Tournament on the Potomac River. It was Michael’s first major bass tournament win. Michael has
worked for years to take his communication and leadership skills to an advanced level. He is a Distinguished
Toastmaster and is highly skilled at communication and leadership.

        Michael graduated from Virginia Tech with a Bachelor’s Degree in Electrical Engineering in 1976. He has
worked 32 years for the U.S. Navy. His business accomplishments include being named the Defense Advanced
Research Projects Agency (DARPA) office Government agent of the year in 1985 for managing the Navy Battle
Management Program. This program resulted in Artificial intelligence technologies, including expert systems,
being integrated into the Navy operational command center at CINCPACFLT.

        During 1976-1985 Michael designed, developed, and delivered several Command, Control, Computer,
Communication, and Intelligence (C4I) systems to Navy operational sites worldwide. These included the
Geographic Analysis Correlation Terminal (GACT), the Ocean Surveillance Information System (OSIS), and the
Operations Support Group Prototype (OSGP). The OSGP has evolved into the Global Command and Control
System (GCCS) which today supports fast intelligence analysis worldwide by our Joint forces.

        Michael has been a certified Project Management Professional (PMP) since 2000. He is considered an
expert in leadership principles, strategic planning, and project management disciplines. Michael recently
completed his Advanced Master’s Certificate in Projected Management from the University of George Washington.

        Michael’s career goal he set over 3 years ago was to transition from his naval engineering job to full time
professional fishing by 2008. Michael is a strong advocate of continual learning and loves working with people.
He is president of a large Bass club, “OBC BASSMASTERS”, and is past Area Governor for Toastmasters. In
2006 Michael has attained Distinguished Toastmaster (DTM). This is the highest level of Toastmaster recognition
for both leadership and communication skills.

         Michael is a highly skilled Bass fisherman, energetic public speaker, and persuasive in explaining benefits
of the products he uses. He has over twenty years’ bass fishing experience and a large network of fishing contacts.
Michael actively supports many yearly family fishing events and teaches children’s Sunday school with his wife
Teresa.
