Bass History in Photos – A Quartet of Smallmouth Greatness

Editors Note: The old adage is that “A picture is worth a thousand words.” So many times while looking through old books and magazines, we’ll come across photos that seem to just reach out and grab our attention for one reason or another. Oftentimes, there really isn’t a story or post ready or needed to go along with these shots. As such, we’ve decided to add a new category to the Bass Fishing Archives site titled ‘History in Photos.’ These posts will simply be a picture with a caption, no story attached. Hopefully you’ll find these old photos as interesting as we do, and perhaps you, our readers, can be the ones to lend some storyline to them via your comments.
