You’ve heard me talk about friendships in fishing clubs. Not just within clubs, but within the fishing community. Let me share with you an example of how a support system of anglers can truly become an aid to someone in need.

I currently belong to a small club up in the Tampa/Brandon area. The name of the club is the MacDill Bassbusters. The club originated from a bunch of retired military servicemen that were all working as civilians out at MacDill Air Force Base in Tampa. Some of those guys were friends of mine and had become friends through fishing. So when the club formed, I became a member out of respect to the guys that have served.
