Went down to Paris Landing to toss a few swimbaits to see how they run,ramp was busy ,asked if any T going on .Reply strike king thing.So went on down to the dock passed among about 20 anglers all with boats with .com addy etc wrapped,expensive rigs not noticing who they all were had my thought pattern elsewhere.Tossed a Tater Hog in a few times with my Skeet Reese 8 ft swimbait rod,and a fella comes up behind me asks if thats a skeet reese and what kind of bait as he said looked pretty.Then asked if he could take a pic as he was a friend of his (Skeet Reese).I turned saw his hat low but recognized him immeadiately and said You sure can Mr VanDam.
Ive often taken pics of pros,but never ever had one want to take my pic.
Ps I handed him the rod,he tossed the Tater Hog several times,then handed it back,
Very nice man indeed have always known that but never had a one on one with him.
Now is there any interest in a Skeet Reese rod that Kevin Van Dam has used,complete with a Tater Hog swimbait he liked-Joke you can have it when you pry it from my cold dead hands.
