|Gresham Ford Sponsors Fishing Information Tour|
This past weekend was National Fishing & Boating Week and we are fortunate to have Ed Chin, a local Gresham resident and professional fishing sportsman, to heighten our awareness. Being a representative of the FLW (Fishing League Worldwide) and TBO (The Bass Federation of Oregon) Ed is just returning from a national tour where he won awards and recognition for his expertise and
knowledge in the world of fishing, (Bass fishing to be more precise). Partnering with Walmart, he visited regional Walmart stores in Hood River, Wood Village and St. Helen, Oregon. At each of these locations he displayed a truck and the boat he was pulling, visited with customers about fishing tackle and answered questions on where to fish. Traveling over 250 miles over the week end, the truck and boat combo were a huge hit with the store’s employees and customers generating lots of questions concerning the boat, truck and fishing.
We were happy to supply Ed with a 2015 F-150 on this journey and we feel privileged to be a part of this glimpse into the world of fishing. If you’d like to know more or ask some serious questions of Ed yourself, please visit www.tbforegon.com or Ed Chin's Facebook page,
Here’s a quote found on the TBF website;
"With every trip I collect new mementoes, though few are collected in scrapbooks. And all who fish for bass across the land collect them too. They are the images from first light to last and from first fish to last. And we'd share them in a minute. Some recall particular triumphs, often preserved in snapshots and clippings, while others we tend to hide, at least until we're ready to laugh about them. Daybreak, canebreaks, heartbreaks, muggy nights and foggy mornings. A hundred things that worked, and a thousand more that should have. That's bass fishing."-George Krame
