We are amongst fishing freaks

Here on the Tennessee River, in my home state, we are amongst fishing freaks. That's a term I first heard from Dave Mercer, and it's a compliment. There are approximately 80 spectator boats out here watching KVD, Russ Lane and Jeff Kriet. They're generally close enough together to be chatting happily and enjoying the nice breeze. Out here, everyone's a friend.


One observation from yesterday's Bassmaster University. That crowd was serious about fishing. A big crowd showed up on a Friday morning. In the seminars they asked intelligent questions and many came with note pads to jot down the answers.
