Angling Stuff

Angling Hero Rick Clunn - "He's always inspired me. When I was in high school he won back-to-back Classics, and that's when I knew that's what I wanted to do." Ben Davenport - "When I was a kid, he took me fishing all over where we live."
Home Lake Lake Amistad
Favorite Lake Falcon Lake (TX) - "It was probably the best lake in the world until Mexico took a bunch of the water out of it. But it's still my favorite lake."
