Sarley: Fishing pro’s thoughtful words still resonate
Last week, I wrote about an RCL walleye/sauger tournament on the Illinois River out of Spring Valley that I fished in as a co-angler a few years back. My first-day pro was horrible, and we caught no fish. We were one of seven boats out of 159 to score a big fat zero for a share of last place. My second-day partner was to be Ron Seelhoff, the all-time money winner in walleye fishing. When I dialed his cell to make arrangements for the next morning, he made it clear as to exactly how he felt about getting stuck with a partner who caught no fish. I hardly slept that night.
