OK I won't spoil it but the final round last night was another fun one
My favorite section was the last 10 minutes. There's KVD, his hair is matted. He's looking kinda wounded, like a guy who has thrown reaction in the wind for 4 days straight. His reel is making a sound that says, "I've been abused help!"
The wind is blowing a steady 12. He's landing fish on a crankbait, unhooking them barehanded, weighing and releasing them so fast it makes all the other competitors look like kids. Like kids at a farm pond with a worm. Serious. It's just a display.
You seldom see these guys looking like this. Haggard and vicious. McClelland says he's never fished so hard in as a long as he can remember. They all have a kind of wild-eyed look to them by the end. It's great
Biggest laugh for me was at the trophy presentation when everyone walks on stage holding a Busch beer. When I first heard about this format my initial thought was that this sounds like a Bass-n-Tubes tourney. The cheap beer proved it. ROFL.
