What started as a small Facebook group in late 2019 has grown fairly quickly — hats, shirts, mugs, and even tournaments.
The Facebook group Texas Fishing recently held its second tournament on March 22nd, 2020. Despite growing concerns across the nation due to COVID-19, precautions were taken to ensure anglers would keep an appropriate distance. The event saw a respectable 30 anglers show up for an “all waters” tournament.
According to Texas Fishing owner Corey Eddins, participants were fishing “all over the place,” exercising both social distancing and competitive strategy.
