Cindy (“Sid”) Nguyen comes from a long lineage of fishing, tracing her family history to fishing villages in Vietnam. Born and raised in Houston, Cindy grew up with a rod in her hand fishing off the beaches, piers and jetties in Galveston with her family. Cindy has caught over 60 species of fish, and has combed the waters from the Gulf Coast to Mexico, down to the Bahamas in pursuit of the catch. If she’s not travelling the country attending the sport fishing industry’s largest events, she can be found “pushing reds” (her favorite species to target) in Texas marshes. She’s graced the cover and pages of notable publications such as Coastal Angler, Salt Water Sportsman, Fly & Light Tackle Angler, is a Florida Sportsman contributing writer and avid photographer.
