Pro Staff Question - How Old Do You Have To Be To Become A Pro Fisherman
Charles "The Bass Doctor" Stuart's Answer
18 is the lowest legal age in a tournament trail such as B.A.S.S. or the FLW.
Parental consent may be possible for a lower age, but you should contact the organizations directly for more information.
What Types Of Sponsors Should A Younger Angler Solicit
Sponsors are always looking for new, young and up and coming fishermen and women. If I were around the 17 to 18 year range I would be looking at companies who appeal to a younger audience.
Think of some of the clothes manufacturers who make outdoor clothing like Colombia and soft drink companies like Coca Cola or Red Bull.
I suggest you get to know the product before you go to them and ask for help.
Chances are they will send you logos and free samples, but hey, its a start!
You should also read my article “So You Want To Turn Pro” on this website for more information.
