I made it in the Olympian Newspaper here in Olympia, WA. Its about me and the fishing trip that I took the Editor on. Bad weather, whihc he didnt mention, kinda screwed up fishing. But it was alot of fun.

It was the feature story on the Outdoors page.

         Thanks,

                      Nick Barr

That is just too cool. Congarts Nick. Keep that one for your scrap book and send one to each of your sponsors, and a few sponsors you don't have yet.

That's a great article Nick!  Most bass fisherman fish a lifetime without being the subject of a newspaper or magazine article.  It also sounds like you are a good bass fisherman.  Congratulations.  Maybe the article will make other youth ask their parents to take them fishing, which would be a great thing for the youth and the parents.  You are a great example for your peers.

Yes I know, I am so lucky to have a mother that does so much for me and supports whatever decisions I may take. I thank God for her everyday. I will make sure to say a special thanks to my mom today on behalf of BassResource.com

          Thanks,

                       Nick

Ill tell you right now nick.  You have something going.  As a person who has an undieing passion for the sport of bass fishing and everything that comes with it, the marketing, public relations, travel, and of course the fishing i know a good thing when i see it.

You definently have a good contact.  Keep in touch with that writer and always think out of the box and promote your sponsors.  This is how you grow as a pro.  Its all selling.  As a professional these companies pay you to move their BOTTOM LINE!  And if you can show them that you do this......by sending them reports of what you have done to promote their product or service you can really move up on the totem pole.  You need to save articles like this and put them into a portfolio and really work on it.  Future sponsors will jump all over you when you show them you are a good PROMOTER....which to them is (i hate to say it) a bit more important than a fisherman.  

And work on your public speeking skills this is really key.......being able to speek to the public is very important.  

I personally have many articles in my portfolio........storys promoting the Baranof Wilderness Lodge in Warm Springs Bay Alaska (sponsor) and also on other things such as tournament  finishes, lake reports, and on my All-Teen Team Bass Tournament  Fudraiser bass tournament i organized.  these are all things that i save.........even the smallest because i am starting out too.  Personally im saving my portfolio until i graduate from college because as a sponsored ATHALETE you need to think of it as a FULL TIME job......and i want to save that until i have finished my Marketing degree.  But thats my path.......you have chosen another one and for your age.........you are doing PHENOMINAL and i mean that!!  

I dont mean to lecture you about this but i really see something in you, and i want you to grow as an angler and a proficient promotor of the sport of bass fishing........but i dont think you need this info because i think you already know it.

Anyways......youve got it bro.  Ill see you on the water.

Yes, I hope so too.

As for the Portfolio I do have one with all my articles and pictures.

I think I have a good resume now, but I am going to remake mine this summer and its going to be in color and everything, and I am sure going to include the articles.

I feel like a proud older brother!

Kudos to mom for recognizing a healthy time occupier and supporting it so well.

You may not have caught much but numbers aren't the only thing that gain rspect.  Respect you obviously earned from this guy.

Well Done.
