Fletcher Shryock's journey to the top of the bass fishing world is a great story. The former professional motocross racer started fishing at a very young age. After a shoulder injury derailed his racing career his focus returned to the sport he loved as a child. His meteoric rise from club angler to professional is nothing short of amazing. “In 2009 I started fishing tournaments and by 2011, I was fishing the Elites (Bassmaster),” said Shryock.
