Dan Basore   Dan Basore  

Dan Basore started a fishing club, a fishing log book and began collecting old fishing tackle at age 15 in 1958. He continued as an avid angler fishing throughout the USA and other countries including Mexico, Canada, Africa and Brazil.

Dan is one of the earliest Charter/Life members of the Bass Anglers Sportsman Society, (B.A.S.S.). He served as President of the Indianapolis Bassmasters and has won many tournaments including a National Bass tournament on Indiana's Lake Monroe.

After achieving success in these contests he concentrated on a business career in which he became the Chief Operating Officer of two national award winning state financial service corporations. Dan next formed a business, CU 1st, that had the exclusive contract with American Express to place their financial planners in credit unions. He served on many advisory boards of the Credit Union National Association and Ross Perot's EDS.

His passion for fishing from the earliest hooks made to the latest tackle was high from the beginning and continues to grow with each discovery of old fishing tools and new developments in rods, lures, reels and lines. His Historical Fishing Display has been featured in many museums, shows and publications and has been a growing feature at the "Chicago Rosemont Show"
since 1982.

Basore has authored hundreds of articles about fishing and it's history and has been involved as an exhibitor at Sports shows since 1968

Mark Millis  

Uncle Millie

Mark was born and raised in Lansing, Michigan. His father owned a welding shop right next door and on the other side of the house, his Aunt and Uncle owned the most popular gun shop in Mid-Michigan. Hence, his future was pre-determined.

Mark began his journey into mechanical know-how at age six with his first mini-bike. It was this mini-bike that turned Mark into a self confessed "Motorhead"! He continued to turn the wrenches on everything from old outboard engines to heavy construction equipment but his true passion remains motorcycles. He owns several vintage motorcycles of all different makes and models including his preferred ride, a nearly mint-condition 1964 Pan-head.

He's also is a 3rd generation journeyman ironworker and owns an ornamental iron workshop. He holds the title of Master Iron Artist endorsed by Michigan State University and in 2002, was named Ornamental Iron Artist of the year.
Fortunately, Mark's passion doesn't end with the ratchet set. His love of the outdoors, including hunting and fishing, actually trumps his mechanical attributes. From farm pond panfish to Great Lake's salmon, from cottontail rabbits to wily whitetails, Mark is in pursuit of all game species.

Sorry ladies, Mark is married to the love of his life, Ann the Angel. Together, they are a culinary duo of wild games delights. The Millis kitchen is a professional grade masterpiece. Don't plan on losing weight if given the chance to visit.

Mark has used his combined knowledge previously as a co-host of Wolf Creek Productions' "Deer City, USA" seen Thursdays on Outdoor Channel. Currently Mark is filming hunts that will be aired on unclemillie.com next season!
