David Fields, joins his sport fishing operations with Pamelah Howard, Owner and Founder of multi-destinations company, “Global Angling Tours, Inc”
Two seasoned and highly respected agent/outfitters in the Custom Angling Tours industry announce merger of operations.
Pamelah Howard (Amazon River Adventures & Global Angling Tours) and David Fields (Fishin’ Expeditions & Amazon Fishing Adventures) have joined their respective operations together under the Global Angling Tours brand. Terms of the Agreement provide, in part, for the gradual integration of all marketing, operating and logistics of Amazon Fishing Adventures. Effective immediately Fields will join Global Angling Tours as Media Guy, Host and Chief Finatic.
“I would like to welcome David Fields as he joins me and all my past, current and future clients in the operations of GAT. David is a long-time friend, competitor, top-rate Agent/Outfitter and former fishing lodge owner. We have actually worked together in an Outfitter-to-Outfitter/Agent relationship on several occasions. I am truly proud and honored to be working towards and creating the vision we have both had for many years while combining our efforts.
A Little About David: David is the Owner/Founder of dmf, inc., the parent company of Fishin’ Expeditions (FE) & Amazon Fishing Adventures (AFA). Global Angling Tours (GAT) is a new multi-destination company including, but not limited to, Amazon River Adventures, LLC (recently acquired by GAT), Aniak River Adventures and Sportfishing Mexico. David is joining GAT as Media Guy, Host and Chief Finatic.
HERE’S WHAT YOU HAVE WITH THIS MERGER: Two Agent/Outfitters with a combination of 40 years in the custom Angling Tours business with well established and reputable histories – 1st class customer service – knowledge and first-hand experience of all aspects of running a booking and outfitting operation with trustworthy and hardworking Principals. These attributes are what I believe brings you to us, and that is why you can feel assured that exciting times are on the horizon for Global Angling Tours! We are now in the process of implementing the merge of daily operations, logistics, marketing, sales as we strive to provide the “Premier” exotic fishing destinations and eco tours company along with exemplary customer service and options for the type trips we know you all enjoy. We both, as well as our management teams at our fishing destinations, have spent a lifetime striving to build our reputations in this business and the testimonials from customers tend to confirm our efforts.
I can truly tell you that GAT is very “blessed” to have David join us. A well established industry professional with unquestionable reputation, strong destination relationships, and destination operating experience, he is certainly a great asset for GAT. David will focus mostly on brand, marketing, and media strategy as well as working to educate our customers on the tackle and gear needs as well as the techniques required for their fishing destination of choice.”
“I’ve heard this statement more than a few times, “significant change occurs on the average every seven years in business.” I guess my business is tardy. I’m already 15 years in! But I can assure you, big changes are happening now! I’m pleased and excited that change is here!
So here’s the scoop in a nutshell. I have this business competitor; yet associate (how is that possible); and friend who has, like me, been working the Agent / Outfitter side of exotic fishing trips for the last 18 years or so. And BTW, has done a superb job of marketing, management and logistics for 3-4 different companies along the way. My friend has finally decided to go all in and has formed her own company to implement the business model she has always dreamed of.
Let me introduce you to Global Angling Tours, Inc. and it’s owner, Pamelah Howard. You would know her over the last several years by her operations management with Amazon River Adventures, Brazil and Aniak Lodge, Alaska.
I now bring many of the destinations I have represented over the past 15 years through AFA into the Global Angling Tours stable of exotic and top shelf angling destinations. But of much more importance, I hope my many friends and past clients in the industry will join me in following and allowing Global Angling Tours to be your Agent/Outfitter of choice. I can assure you, Pamelah and I will do our very best to continue to earn your business by providing prompt, professional and unequaled personal service.”

“Hi David and Pam,
I want to wish you great success on your collaboration of talents to bring world fishing tour opportunities to your many clients and friends. Having worked with both of you independently on several magazine article editorial and photography assignments over the past 15 years or so, I personally know how professional, organized and productive your operations are. While I’ve been with you on exciting fishing tours in 3 different countries, I know your global portfolio also offers additional sportfishing destinations that will whet any angler’s appetite.
