  • You never know who'll you'll meet???? Wally Marshall...

    First of this week we were Duck Hunting, Amanda (my daughter) and I in Walnut Ridge Arkansas; and as our custom we take one afternoon and run to Missouri to Grizzly Jig Company. We've done this every year that we've come to Arkansas to duck hunt and stock up on our supplies' we need for our crappie fishing trips.

    This year we got there on Tuesday afternoon, was in the store about 15min, already picked up some 14' rods and reels, 2 matching boat seats, and was starting down the long row of Jig bodies when I look over in the store and saw someone who looked familiar; wasn't sure at the time if it was the person I thought is was or not so I ask the person who was helping me if it was Wally Marshall or not.
    So Lance, the person helping us ask if we'd like to meet him. Folks I can't take the time to tell you how impressed I was with How Wally came over and talked, let Amanda get a picture, and the sincerity we felt from talking with him; it wasn't a "Hey, you all crappie fish too?" type conversation but he really took of his time (about 20 mins) and just talked fishing like he knew us all his life.

    I've been able over the years to meet many So called PRO's, and some where really PRO's in the fishing world But for what Wally did for us lets just say Amanda is still Grinning from being able to talk the Mr. Crappie. Hope I get to meet him again one day.

    Here's two Pics of our duck hunt and side trip to Grizzly.... every word that's been said about Wally I concur with. If we never cross paths again it was fun that time.

      Wally is a great person and I had the same thing happen at the fall fishing show. He took the time to talk like he knew you all his life. He is a great fisherman and person. I will also add all of the Grizzly Jig folks are the same way and I think the world of all of them. They treat you just like family over there.
