My first time to the USA and first time catching LargeMouth Bass back in 2010. I fished the US Open on Lake Mead as a CoAngler and drew @fredroumbanis on the final day of the tournament. We had a day I’ll never forget and I finished in 2nd with Big Bass of the tournament. I made a lifelong friend that day and don’t know where I’d be today if I didn’t meet Fred, he gave me the confidence that I had what it takes to make it here in the USA.
I went home and sold everything I owned saved up and moved here the following year and here I am today still living my dream. I’m heading back to the US Open next month and it is a goal to win this tournament one day, looking forward to getting back out there and hopefully reliving some of the amazing memories from that week! 🎣🙌
