These are The Legends of Rod & Reel.
Some are famous; some are not. Some catch crappies; some chase bass.
Some battle tarpon; some cast for carp.
No matter, they all share one thing in common.
Every Legend is exceptional with a hook and line. They possess fishing skills the rest of us can only wish we had.
They have a thirst to catch.
They fish with passion.
These are The Legends of Rod & Reel.
Their stories will be produced by Ron Schara Enterprises and told by Ron Schara, America's premier storyteller.
