What do you guys think about this? There are exceptions assuming your a once in a generation talent but to me just not a smart life decision, didn't work out for that Hibdon boy and isn't working out for that Collings kid, why not go through college fishing first???

Its his choice to try. He is young enough that if it does not work out he has plenty of time to live a "normal" life and get a "normal" job. I hope he succeeds. No wife and kids at home, not a ton of bills at home etc. Great time to get out there, travel around and see if you have what it takes to stay on tour. Really pulling for him to succeed.

He has a pretty good "leg up" on most that want to fish professionally

Well if mom and dad have enough money to get him in and going then more power to him! cheers

If it doesn't work out he is still young enough to go to college and get a job. bannana2

Chris Lane in his corner? Definitely has made some good fishing decisions.

Well, his dad does it for a living so it's not like hes getting fed to the wolves. He will have all the connections to thrive. He definitely has a better shot than some average Joe's kid trying it from a sponsor and behind the scenes standpoint and like what was pointed out earlier, he is young enough to fail and figure something out. What better way to target the younger crowd than to put this kid front and center. Dont think for a second Boyd and company dont know that. I'm guessing he can fish pretty good. How did he get the invite?

Yep, college guarantee success, look at AOC. We've got to stop pumping kids with this false narrative that college = success in life. Do you know how many azz-hats I know that have a degree? It's limit-less.

Plenty of time to spend $200,000 on college. Good luck, kid.
