Well it’s official. Bass Pro has answered my letters and prayers by deciding to build one less than 3 miles from my house. Seriously, the day they hire employees, you will find me in line. Yes I know that there is more money in Private Practice, but I started in a fishing store and maybe I’m destined to finish in one. There is something special about working in a fishing store, its the camaraderie and staying close to the technology and science of fishing. Its the people. Due to open in 2015 and employee 300 people, the fishing IQ of Almaden just got a shot in the arm. How great it will be to have a fishing boats, hunting and high end fly fishing equipment, a bowling alley and restaurant with a fishing theme not more than 10 minutes from my door. Fly tying material, bass lures and high end fly rods and reels 10 minutes away. Check out the bowling alley! Strike.
