Elite Stars Remember Sandy Hook

By Luigi De Rose

Fishing is a family sport. That often doesn't shine through during major bass tournaments but it did during the first Bassmaster Elite tournament of 2013. In a true act of respect, humility and empathy many Elite anglers dawned green coloured tournament jerseys to reflect the school colour of Sandy Hook.  Sandy Hook elementary school was the site of a deadly mass murder that took the life of almost thirty people, many of them young, grade 1 students. Even though the focus was on catching bass along the Sabine River, Elite anglers knew they needed to honour the memory of the innocent.  Here are a few who did.
