"With every trip I collect new momentos, though few are collected in scrapbooks. And all who fish for bass across the land collect them too. They are the images from first light to last and from first fish to last. And we'd share them in a minute.

Daybreak, canebreaks, heartbreaks, muggy nights and foggy mornings.  A hundred things that worked, and a thousand more that should have. That's bass fishing."
