Bass Wars: A Story of Fishing, Fame and Fortune

Nick Taylor (Author)


Ray Scott founded the Bass Angler Sportsman Society (B.A.S.S.) and launched a series of tournaments that created a new brand of sports hero: the professional bass fisherman. Roland Martin and Rick Clunn won big tournaments and grew into legends. They inspired countless anglers who dreamed of fishing their way to fame and fortune. BASS WARS vividly describes the beginnings of B.A.S.S. as it follows Clunn, his top rivals, and two of the young dreamers, Randy Blaukat and Randy Moseley, during one grueling and fascinating year in the high-stakes, high-pressure sport of big-league bass fishing. Bass anglers and fishing fans alike consider it a classic.
