 About the Book 

Hes been compared to an evangelist preacher, P.T. Barnum, Will Rogers, and Sam Walton. One thing for certain, Ray Scott is an all-American original. He turned his personal passion into profits with the founding of the worlds largest sportfishing organization--the Bass Anglers Sportsman Society (B.A.S.S.). BASS BOSS is the riveting biography of the man Field & Stream selected, along with Theodore Roosevelt and Rachel Carson, as on of the twenty most influential outdoor Americans of the 20th century. His entertaining and inspirational story is an insiders look at the personalities, the pro fishermen, the technology, and the events that shaped the multi-billion dollar bass fishing industry. Rarely has one man had such an impact on an industry. Over three decades, Ray Scott, a native of Montgomery, Alabama, transformed bass fishing from a sleepy weekend pursuit to an exciting sport that is enjoyed by millions--whether on a strictly personal level or as participant or spectator in highly competitive pro tournaments. While creating B.A.S.S., Scott spawned an industry of fishing heroes, tackle, boats, marine electronics, fishing publications, specialty retail stores, and more. Here are the triumphs and failures, the memorable personalities, and the behind-the-scenes dramas never told before. Its a story of vision, determination, perseverance and faith that will inspire anglers and nonanglers alike. by Robert H. Boyle
