Darl Black

Darl Black has been enjoying the outdoors since he was old enough to accompany his father on fishing, boating and hunting outings.

Trained as a teacher, Darl switched careers to pursue outdoor writing and photography, specializing in freshwater angling. His byline and photos have appeared regularly in national and regional print publications for over 30 years, as well as appearances on radio, television and as seminar speaker at sport shows.

During the 1990s, he completed five fishing videos for Quest Productions. In addition to ongoing writing projects, Darl prepares the online NW PA Fishing Report on behalf of PA Great Lakes Region tourism and has recently offered his services as licensed fishing guide.

Marilyn Ann Wolfe Black

A skilled grant writer and editor, Marilyn Ann Wolfe Black is most comfortable when sharing the outdoors with family and friends.

Fishing is her #1 interest followed by boating, kayaking, hiking, photography and bicycling. For ten years, she served as a Commissioner on the Pennsylvania Fish and Boat Commission. For the next decade, she hosted a regional weekly radio program titled “Afield and Afloat with Marilyn Black.”

Today her articles and photographs are published in “Pennsylvania Angler and Boater Magazine,” “Recreation News,” and “Pennsylvania Magazine.” She often escorts guests through the distinctive natural and historic sites in the Oil Region National Heritage Area, where she’s employed in heritage development. She is an excellent proofreader!
