Evinrude pro Richard Dobyns grabs Western FLW AOY title

I'm the proud pop and need to brag just a little. Richard fished strong this season, even made the 17 hour drive to a lake he had never seen before.  He is planning on hitting FLW Tour next season.

Congrats to you and your son. I'm sure he had a lot of good coaching growing up.Smiley Happy

 

Does he have any particular rod sponsor helping him out? Smiley Very HappySmiley Very HappySmiley Wink

 

And just for the record and plug for his "other" sponsor, what brand of reels is he using? I'm sure amongst the pile in the shed I have at least one of two of them.

It's our job to get our kids a all the kids we can into fishing. Getting Richard hooked on fishing was easy. We won our first tournament when he was 7 and he had 2nd big fish. That was many years ago Smiley Happy  Now he's hard to beat, but I whipped him last SaturdaySmiley Happy  First time in a while so i need to brag.

 

I'm proud of him, great kid.
