Ladies serious about their fishing
Thought you might find this article interesting about the ladies in the womens bassmasters tour. Its a long article but shows the dedication of poeple to get more ladies into fishing
(Mar. 08, 2010 – Red Oak, TX)… Rod Baker, husband and Bass Caddy of WBT Pro Boater Dr. Terri Elkins was shocked to hear from one of his buddies, Lake Fork Guide Lee White, that ESPN/BASS had announced the discontinuation of the Academy Sports and Outdoors Women’s Bassmaster Tour on Monday, January 4, 2010.
He was shocked, but not surprised. “I felt during the whole 2009 WBT tournament season that this was the last one, but I hoped that I was wrong”, says Baker.
“But when I started thinking about what those ladies endured in order to fish, I got mad. Some of them sleep in their trucks and tents, and had to take shelter in camp restrooms at 1 am during severe storms with local tornados, and then get up at four to fish the tournament. I felt that, with that kind of dedication, there should be something out there for them to stay together and fish.” Anyone who knows Rod will agree, when he feels like something should be done, he takes whatever steps necessary to make it happen.
