Your wasting your time.... anyone under the age of twenty-five can only be reached by text, facebook, or myspace
I'm a young guy under 25 and your reaching me.
I made the mistake of asking for sponsors here a few years ago at the time I had no idea about how it worked.
I have learned a lot and will keep on learning. But I disagree that the top 50 pros don't have sponsors for money. Every interview I've seen the pros always say that sponsors allow them to do what they do.
I agree with RW, worry about the fishing and people skills and sponsors will "find you"(meaning that they might be willing to look at you).
But when they do come don't say "This is not about the money, I love to fish so much I'll just do it for free".
In other words don't plan to make money, but don't turn it down when its offered to you.
Love of fishing is what makes
you get up at 4 in the morning and drive thousands of miles to get to different lakes and then fish for 8 hrs in the freezing cold. Sponsors allow
you to do that.Love of fishing doesn't put gas in the tank or food on the table.
Just some thoughts from a human who can't understand anything other than tru dat or h r u.
Fishing is like life...You take it one cast at a time.
