It got my attention big time!
Nope, I’m not talking about catching another of the few 10-pounders that have come my way. This time it was simply an announcement earlier this year about a special bassin’ man who Gary Yamamoto was adding to his pro staff. This pro, you see, developed a good bit of his winning skills in an area where I’ve done most of my own bass fishing.
And that was just for starters. I had been watching for years with keen interest the record this wondrously skilled bass pro was putting together. He was still a youngster when he first got my attention. I found my interest reinforced because I got to know, you see, what this young man stood for as an individual as well as a crack bass-catching wizard. I wish the world had more like him.
