If a bass angler wants to join up with fellow anglers and participate in fishing tournament, he’ll have no trouble finding a local group to welcome him. If he’s good enough, he might even bite the bullet and hook up with one of the big circuits, groups like the Bass Anglers Sportsman’s Society (BASS) or the FLW circuit.

Cuisine.jpg

When a person starts out thinking about what they are eating, most are a little farther along in life.
