While at the FLW Cup this past month, I ran into longtime tour angler Dave Lefebre and had a chance to talk with him about how he got his start in fishing. He had a couple of good stories for us, including this somewhat morbid one about how he introduced his future wife, Anne, to tournament fishing.

Most anglers who want their significant other to like competitive bass fishing would make sure to take them out during a summer event, or at least one when the weather isn’t supposed to be nasty. I guess they do things differently in Pennsylvania, though.

In any event, Dave and his future wife had a great event – although we don’t condone this technique – and have an awesome story to tell.
