I appreciate all the positive feedback on my writings I get on here..... my thoughts on the tour, and the economics of fishing nationally.

Well written, it funny I had a guy at work ask me today when I was going pro. I laughed at him for one I am no where near that level to compete on tour, and it makes no sense to me either to even try. I make good money and work and am guaranteed a paycheck every 2 weeks. It's just to hard to walk away from that. I would have to finish top 3 in points for the season to feel like I accomplished something as far as what I earned and there are way to many guys far better than I am fishing to do that. I always wonder how alot of the touring pros can actually afford to fish with no more money than they make.

For me, the travel it's self would be a grind I would not enjoy.

Nice write up. So, how do most guys do it? Is their enough time to guide or have another flexible schedule job?

A large majority that fish it already had money. You don’t fish to get rich. It is something I’d recommend you do. It’s not about the money, but about the experience.
