. About 5 years ago I came off the Elite stage mid way through the year about as beat down as I’d ever been, I couldn’t wait just to get in the truck and leave. On my way to the truck this kid came up to me and asked if I could sign his frog box and all those negative feelings just left me instantly and I was suddenly grateful just to be there.
Fast forward to my second day at Lake Fork and with a similar defeated feeling coming off stage I hear my name called and turn to see young Lane standing there with that same frog box and his new swimbait box he wanted signed. In the tough times you have to remember the things to be grateful for, what you have, not what you don’t have. Thanks for picking me up after a tough event mate, was great to see ya again and hope we can catch up for a fish one day!
