Upon graduating from the University of Florida College of Journalism and communications, he left the field to become a light tackle fishing guide in Key West. Specializing in fly-fishing and world record hunting, he and his clients have set 31 IGFA records. An innovative fly tier, his patterns have accounted for more than 60 IGFA world records, including the first-ever hammerhead shark taken on regulation fly tackle.
Lund is highly sought after as a consultant in the marine industry and has had affiliations with leading marine manufacturers including Suzuki Marine, Penn Reels, Yo-Zuri, Segaur and Maui Jim.
He was on the founding masthead of both Salt Water Fly Fishing and Fly Fishing in Saltwaters. His writing and photography has appeared in numerous publications, including The Miami Herald, Salt Water Sportsman, Sport Fishing, Fly Fishing in Saltwaters, South Florida Sport Fishing and the IGFA annual yearbook.
In 2003, Lund left the Florida Keys to become Managing Editor of Sport Fishing and two years later was promoted to editor of Fly Fishing in Saltwaters.
