Speaking The Dream...

Travis Frank

Tis the season to give a seminar!  Lately this seams to be the norm with all the sport shows and such.  With each season that I put myself in the midst of the fishing scene, I seem to find myself doing more and more.  To be completely honest, I still can't believe that somebody would actually care to hear what I have to say.  I mean honestly.  What has this world come to when a 25 yr old sits up in front of people and talks to them about how to catch a fish.  A fish for cryin out loud!  Haha, well, here's another bit of information about me.  I love to do it!  I am honored at each opportunity that comes along, and love to share all the information that I have learned.  It is a passion of mine, and it never gets old.  Passing it on is even sweeter!

Next Saturday I will again be speaking for a group of fisherman.  This time it will be in St. Paul at a Ranger Boats event.  They are having a Fishing Tackle Swap Meet.  Anybody and Everybody are welcome to join and bring lures to buy, sell and trade.  Apparently it's gonna be a big deal, cuz they have some of the biggest names in fishing attending.  I will be speaking with the likes of Tommy Skarlis and David Dudley.  Both anglers took 2008 angler of the year honors for bass and walleyes.  Needless to say, it is very rewarding for me to be speaking on a stage next to these dudes.  It would be really cool to see some of you guys there.  Click here to learn more!

If that wasn't cool enough, I am also going to be sharing the stage with Mr. Ron Schara at the upcoming Minneapolis Sport Show.  I mean seriously, how neat is that.  Thursday, March 12th at 5:00 and 7:00 pm we will be on stage talking about what else?  Muskies and metro lakes.  With a legendary speaker like Ron, who knows what we'll discuss by the time we're done.  All I do know is that I have been to some previous speaking engagements of his, and he is top shelf!  I just hope I don't mess up his perfectly spoken stories.  Would also love to see you guys at this event.  Come on by and say hello!  Until then, Keep on Livin the Dream!
