How I Help Promote Your Product:

How I Help Promote Your Product: This year, I will be on 15 to 20 television shows. I promote my sponsors’ products, in my fishing articles, which are in newspapers, magazines, videos, DVD’s, cassettes, radio and television commercials throughout the country. I write monthly columns for 5 different magazines throughout the United States. I teach bass fishing courses for Bass Pro Shops throughout the country and also promote my sponsors' products. I average 15 to 20 personal appearances annually at trade and sports shows, and in-store promotions nationwide. I wear my sponsors’ logo, either a patch or a hat and use their product exclusively. I enjoy meeting people at the trade and sports shows, and store promotions where I have the opportunity to introduce them to the features of my sponsors' products. Personalized product demonstration and explanation is extremely important. Because I am sincere and have credibility, people listen to what I have to say.

About Tournament Fishing:

Tournament fishing creates a great competitive atmosphere, which requires you to use your physical and mental skills to the fullest. It also allows you to develop friends nationwide. Throughout the years of tournament fishing, I've personally had the opportunity to meet a tremendous amount of people and I have learned many fishing techniques on different lures and different structures.
