Why the pink?

That photo is Kevin Short holding a catfish. "Right weight, wrong species."

 

I used the opportunity to ask him why pink is his signature color. I kinda assumed it had something to do with breast cancer. But no, he wanted a signature color that no one else had.

 

"I was working for Farm Bureau at the time and they had a pink shirt with a logo on it, and whenever I wore it I got positive comments. Mostly from women. My wife, Kerry, and I talked about it. She thought pink was a good direction to go in and I trusted her. I knew it was the right decision when Skeet saw it for the first time time — he just looked at me and said, NICE!"
