Walton. One thing for certain, Ray Scott is
an all-American original. He turned his personal passion for bass fishing into founding
of the worlds largest sportfishing organization the Bass Anglers
Sportsman Society (B.A.S.S.).

twenty most influential outdoor Americans of the 20th century.
His entertaining and inspirational story is an insiders look

that shaped the multi-billion dollar bass fishing industry.
Rarely has one man had such an impact on an industry. Over three decades, Ray Scott, a native
of Montgomery, Alabama, transformed bass fishing from a sleepy weekend
pursuit to an exciting sport that is enjoyed by millions whether
on a strictly personal level or as participant or spectator in highly
competitive pro tournaments.
B.A.S.S., Scott spawned an industry of fishing heroes,
tackle, boats, marine electronics, fishing publications, specialty retail
stores, and more. Here are the triumphs and failures,
the memorable personalities, and the behind-the-scenes dramas never told
before. Its a story of vision, determination,
perseverance and faith that will inspire anglers and non-anglers alike.

even when the clock read 2:00 AM. I really enjoyed this book even though
I am not an avid Bass fisherman. Beware! If you do decide to read this
book, start early. Those late nights are hard on a body the next morning....
