When FLW Tour pro Jonathan Newton realized his boat compartments were frozen shut and went to work trying to get a lid open, outdoor writer David Brown immediately reached for his camera. David and I were meeting Jonathon early to get a different set of photos, but things like frozen lids are realities of fishing, so Jonathon's solutions spelled story material for David.
I've watched a lot of innovation and determination this week at the TH Marine media event at Pickwick. We all expected a fall-like trip when the event was planned for mid-November in Alabama. Instead we found snow at the ramp yesterday morning and low 20s this morning, all with a good dose of wind. Pros and writers alike came to do a job, though, and everyone's doing what it takes to get good photos and story material.
At the moment we're all refueling and warming up for another afternoon of cold but productive fishing and photo work.
