When we watched him take home the title yesterday one of the thought’s that crossed my mind was that the founder of B.A.S.S, the late great “Ray Scott” would’ve been proud to see a young man persevere with such class, determination, sheer instinct and pure love of the sport take home the title despite fishing without all the new bells and whistles that people have become accustomed too in the new age of fishing.
I also come from humble beginnings and watching Louis these past 3 days it reminded me of a saying my Mother used to say to me….
“Money doesn’t buy class, so there’s no reason not to have it.”
