To Win Again!

I just finished the FLW Tour stop number six at the Potomac River, and what a great feeling to win again! It's been a long time since I won a tour level event, and this one could not have come at a better time – what a difference a year can make. About this time last year, things were pretty shaky for me. I had a heart attack in May, and confidence was probably at an all-time low. What turned it around? It actually was the heart attack. I just have a new way of looking at things – more relaxed, better perspective on what’s important. It also gave me a small break - one where I got to feeling really well, exercised, lost a little weight and started gaining confidence by fishing on my own with a renewed outlook. I also started filming a lot for Fishing and Hunting Texas, which I have thoroughly enjoyed. I've always fished the best when I was really busy, confident and relaxed. That’s where I am now. It feels good, and I'm looking forward to many more years of winning!
