About Angler Alley
Fans of professional sports like NFL football, NASCAR and Major League Baseball are for the most part confined to the grandstands to watch their favorite players on the fields and race track.

On the other hand, fans of the Bassmaster Elite Series have no barriers to overcome if they want to meet their favorite professional athletes. The setting for this open house of sorts is "Angler Alley," a unique fan experience that allows them a chance to mingle with the anglers prior to the beginning of each event.

A special twist to Angler Alley is the pros bring their boats to the event, giving fans an up-close look at the rigs and all the gear it takes to fish the Elite Series competitions.

The pros are very approachable at Angler Alley and welcome the chance to meet the fans.

"It's a great opportunity for the fans to come out and meet us, ask questions," said popular Bassmaster Elite Series pro Timmy Horton. "We welcome their questions about fishing and are glad to share fishing tips, sign autographs, take pictures and meet our fellow anglers and BASS members."
