The Bassmaster Classic

The name almost says it all...for competitive fishing enthusiasts it is often labeled the as the pinnacle of the sport.  If you're not familiar with the Bassmaster Classic it is the fishing equivalent to Nascar's Daytona 500, football's Super Bowl, and horse racing's Kentucky Derby.  To a fishing fan or competitor it is as the well worn cliche' goes..."The Greatest Show on Earth".  I spent last week at the Bassmaster Classic working for Phoenix Boats. Working?? Yes working, as some know, alongside the whole competition aspect of the Bassmaster Classic there is an outdoors expo, loaded with anything and everything imaginable that can be related to the fishing world.  It is a fisherman's dream, or nightmare depending on the current balance of your credit card!  I was able to snap a few pictures of our booth as we put on the finishing touches, and a pic or two when we had a minute to breathe.  Did I mention that at times we were overrun with visitors to the booth? That's not a bad thing, it's an opportunity to meet some great people who share a common passion...FISHING!  I've attached a couple pictures below, unfortunately I wasn't able to get very many and being in a hurry didn't help the picture quality, but I'm sure you understand.  We were busy, due to the fact that apparently there are a lot of Phoenix Boats fans out there! 
God Bless,

Adding the finishing touches right before the show opens

In a brief moment where I got to exhale, I snapped a quick pic of the booth and a couple visitors
