Cool story about Tom Mann and his pet bass, Leroy Brown.

Somewhere I have a Leroy Brown rattlin' lure from 30+ years ago. White bass would eat the paint off it.

Cool story.

Ask Ernie Dye of Lake Fork Resort about Tom Mann. He worked for Mr. Mann for decades.

Great story Chris. Tom deserves a lot of credit for what he did for tackle industry and for those who never had the privilege to attend a BASS weigh-in with Ray Scott as the emcee you have no idea what a performance you missed. The man would put P.T. Barnum to shame and knew more fish stories than anyone I've ever known, most of them true.
