#9 - Fletcher Shryock
Fletcher Shryock is not your father's bass pro. He's different ... a lot different. After finishing 161st in his first Bassmaster Open, Shryock nearly hung it up, but a friend convinced him to keep trying. He won his next B.A.S.S. event, simultaneously earning a berth in the 2012 Bassmaster Classic. That's when he set his sights on qualifying for the Elite Series. Now the former motocross racer will be competing against Kevin VanDam, Edwin Evers, Rick Clunn, Mike Iaconelli and Denny Brauer on the toughest fishing circuit in the world. With just seven pro tournaments under his belt, is Shryock ready for the Elite Series? Is the Elite Series ready for Shryock?
