Around this time last year, I received a call from a guy who told me he and his dad recently won a fishing tournament. I figured they wanted some publicity and some photos in the paper to please their sponsors, and their egos. But then he told me that his dad was completely blind, as was the entire field of anglers. After we got off the phone, I met up with the father and son duo at Fishin’ Frank’s, took some photos and typed up a little story. The feedback was good, because the cause was good. Funds were raised for the SWFCB, and people who would normally never get together, did so. And they had a blast.
Since then, myself and WaterLine publisher Josh Olive decided to put on a couple of our own tournaments. I’ve gotten a lot of feedback since helping organize our first two fishing tournaments earlier this year. The vast majority have been positive. Most like to say how much fun they had. Although that’s an incredible compliment, the best feedback to me is when people tell us how much they like the fact that we are giving back to the community.
