Bill would rather fish than eat

By BCarson - Published January 04, 2011 - Viewed 926 times

My mother always said, “Bill would rather fish than eat”, and she was correct. Fishing is the greatest sport on earth. Having loved to fish from the day I learned to walk, fishing has always been a part of my life.

In the early years of my career I was into marketing, advertising and sales. The last of these “early” years afforded me the opportunity to fish way more than the average person but I was not in “the fishing business”. The decision was made that once my youngest went away to college I would sell my business and make fishing my “full time” business. So 5 years ago that is what I did. In the past 5 years I have worked as account manager for Shimano’s advertising agency where I helped to start the Shimano Fishing Tour, worked for FLW where I started the Striped Bass Tour and served as Director of Sales, and I worked as Promotions Manager for Bass Pro Shops. All of these were challenging but fun jobs.
 
 Presently, I work as Pro Staff for BoatUS ANGLER, Navico, Minn Kota, Driftmaster, Tidewater, Cannon and others -  traveling, (fishing in cool places with great fishermen and fisherwomen), to educate about fishing and some of the truly great services and products manufactured for the sport. When I am not traveling, (most of the time even when I am..), I’m fishing or talking about fishing.
