When did tournaments end. And where in the heck did Derby come from. A fishing Detby sounds like a sissy event. What happened to Tournaments.

Derby goes back to at least 1980: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Fishing_Derby

they probably hired a snowflake to help them reach a bigger audience since the MLF folks are leaving and that is what he came up with.

Hank Parker has been calling them "derbies" since I was a kid.

Competitive fishing at the amateur level has gone so downhill over the past 10 years. Bass fishing in general has changed so much. Its sad. Too many hey look at me guys instead of fishing for the fish.

"Derby" is a pet name, or by word, you know, "slang" for competition. I bet older guys remember "Soap Box Derbies" when we were kids. Same as in Rodeo/Cowboy circles, a lot of times refer to our horses as "ponies", when they are obviously full size, grown animals. We all know they are Tournaments, no big deal.

Nomenclature, some areas have always called they derby's, blame Jay Kumar for making it more popular to call them that.
