Bass fishing junkies are all for the glory of Bassmaster fishing and the pros who keep chasing their dreams and inspire from the heart and have made it. Bass fishing fans define themselves as part of a group. Its more than whether or not the pro wins, it’s the journey and a sense of allegiance. How fans each learned about fishing, bass fishing and Bassmaster B.A.S.S. fishing lets the fans know they have something in common, and to that end appreciate the sport of game fishing.
It’s like being a “Trekkie”
Bass fishing fans are everywhere, and it’s so awesome to know where ever you go in the world chances are you are going to run into another fan, and once the conversation begins the fishing stories could go on for hours. Reciting tricks, fixes and statistics that only those who are not total fishing geeks find trivial and boring.
Like Comic Con and Drag Con, the tournaments are more than fishing competitions, and the fishing expos give the fishing enthusiasts a place to meet and hang out, geek over fishing gear, and a place where a sense of belonging happens, and life is good.
