I've always had a fascination with the sport of bass fishing. Nearly every decision I've made since high school has been influenced by my need to be on the water. Where I wanted to live, what i wanted to drive, where I went to school, how I would earn money all hinged on how much time it would leave for fishing. I sometime wander what people do that don't fish. It's always been the center piece of conversation at our Sunday dinners in my family.
