One of the many patches that Hubert Green Collected over time. A 1982 Hungry Fisherman patch.

One of the many patches that Hubert Green Collected over time. A 1982 Hungry Fisherman patch.

Back in April we posted two stories on the patches that Hubert Greene had collected over the course of time. In those first two pieces, we covered his patches from 1967 to 1972 and the second piece was on patches from 1973 to 1980. In this piece we take a look at his patches from 1981 through 1997.

In the previous parts of this series, many of the patches presented were from organizations other than B.A.S.S. – such as American Bass Fisherman, National Bass Association, Project Sports Inc. and others. This was a sign of the times when B.A.S.S. wasn’t the only game in town.

As time would go on, though, B.A.S.S. could be what you call the lone survivor of the early bass fishing organizations and because of that, 20 of the 21 patches here are from Bassmaster events. The lone standout is from Jerry Rhyne’s Hungry Fisherman organization.

There are a number of other patches that were in Hubert Greene’s collection but they aren’t connected with any tournament or tournament organization. They are manufacturer’s patches and range from electronic companies to boat companies. We’ll present those another time.

In the meantime, here are the tournament patches from 1981 through 1997.
