David Norman helped to break a young angler’s duck on the bass fishing front over the weekend. After nearly two years of effort, Zac still hadn’t managed to land a bass. He still wouldn’t give up though, and David continues the story below:

Young Zak told me he had only one chance left this morning to land his elusive first bass before a return to school and the possibility of another long winter of bass fishing discontent. I told Zak, “it’s not over ’til it’s over”, arranged to meet him at his chosen location to try and help move things a little in his favour and isn’t that just what happened.

A lovely first fish caught on a topwater lure no less! Congratulations Zak and well done for sticking with it!

First bass for Zak

Now that Zak has caught his first Irish bass we expect him to follow it up with many more.
