How Long Bass Fishing: 4 years
How Started Bass Fishing: Taught to bass fish by my hiking partner who was a tournament angler for a while. He invited my husband and me to spend the day on his bass boat. I soon started studying Bassmaster Magazine so I could develop my own style of fishing. Fishing has been the topic of discussion while walking many miles in the wilderness.
