Sure I want to stay minimum 2 weeks max 1 month.
Im comming from Belgium.
And sure im willing to work and fish for room and board? but it depends what kind of work.
I also even want to pay but i want to reduce the costs.
I just want to visit America for bass fishing.
Every holliday me and my dad went to spain to catch black bass, pike and zander.
I already have a lot of fishing experience and i know a lot of different techniques.
And like my name says my dream is to become a professional angler but it is very difficult to realize this as a stranger from an other country. First i want to approve my fishing skills.
If you want more information just ask.
Already thanks for replying and willing to help smile people like you give me hope

Alright guys; here is a young man from another country wanting to come to Texas and get as much experience as we can give him. I need your help to make this happen and am willing to be his mentor.

- If any of you know one of the resorts that could use some summer help this would give him some experience around one of the lakes.
- I will do all the leg work in working this out with the resort.
- I will be available to pick him up at the airport and get him to this location.
- I will be there to make sure things are working out and he is doing a good job.
- I will see that he gets as much fishing in as possible.
- I will make arrangements for a guide to take him out for a day on the water which will be his best experience and take care of this expense.

Any other help and/or suggestions that you guys here on the TFF can give would be appreciated. This is a great opportunity to Pay It Forward.

That is very kind of you, Mr. Harper. Does anyone know if the story of Takahiro Omori is in print anywhere? Isn't he the one who lived out of the small travel trailer on Fork when he first came to the US? I know this is some different, but it might be encouraging to this young man to read and know that it is possible to make his dream come true.

I'm no guide, but I can take him out for a day or two, just let me know if that would help, one day on fork and then maybe lake of the pines

Just let me know if I can help

I would assume so--there's a picture of him holding a bass, and one of the pictures mentions something about Spain...

Tell Dad this is not something that will happen quickly. It will take many people working together to make this happen. Let's see how much help and suggestions other fisherman can give then we will develop a plan.

Donald we realise it will be very difficult and take a lot of time but for me is your response a kind of gift from god. Without help from you and other anglers it would be inpossible.
Are there still things i can do?

Nothing to do at this time. Just keep an eye on the post to see if that one big break comes along with a place to stay on the lake where you can fish and work each day.

I am thanking fishing every morning then working at one of the resorts until closing time. This would provide you with a place to stay and something to eat. You probably want make any cash though; but you will survive and get the experience you are looking for.

Hopefully someone on here has enough pull to get you a position for a month. I don't believe any of the resorts would want to do it for any shorter period of time.

I already know the story of him.
Isn`t he the first professional bassangler from an other country.
Who won the Bassmasterclassic?
