A few years ago I interviewed a female angler who seemed fairly legit. She wasn’t yet competitive at the Costa or Opens level, but she wasn’t far off. She had her own boat, a few local sponsors, and seemed to be doing things “the right way.”
My point in Tuesday’s blog entry was to comment on how incredibly difficult it is right now to get into the Elite Series. That’s pressuring some anglers who might otherwise be inclined to leave to stay around, because no matter how confident they are in their skill sets, they know that if they ever want back in it’s not necessarily an easy path.
