Getting Started as a Professional Angler?
Hi fellas I was hoping you guys could give me some insight into how to get started in big time walleye fishing. The main question I have is how to approach companies, about some sort of sponsorship. I am under the impression that you need to win before they will even look at you. I'm 26 years old, each year I have been fishing independent tourneys like the wave wackers and the merc classic. I just want to ease my way into the scene. Eventually I would like to fish a full circuit. I don't expect sponsors to give me very much. But when I go talk to companies who do I talk to? Would it be the owner, and what do you ask for? Also what could I do to help promote their products? Being as though I'm just starting out. Basically how do I sell myself? Any info would be greatly appreciated. Thanks.
