Thinking about Turning Pro

As everyone loves competition, and those who have competed with the best in many of the local and regional fishing tournaments have an inner voice telling you to try it on the big stage; the thought of being a professional always pops up. That voice in the back of your head tells you I know I can do it, I can compete with the best of them; so you're giving it some deep thought.

Well here is reality if you haven't thought it out; a professional on any level for any sport is a grueling process of endless practice, lonely days, long nights and a tiring process from the outhouse; if you good enough you progress. The things to consider are many, you travel constantly, probably have no personal life if you already have one before you turn pro then it becomes challenging at best; a life full of daily challenges and mental strain that can bring the best of the best to their knees.

The reality is not pretty, many of the pros spend endless nights sleeping in the back of their trucks; watching every dollar and every expense become a major challenge, or a dream to drive you until you finally get to the top. The endless quest for sponsors sets in, you start begging for financial help, you turn to everyone you know to try and figure a way to gain financial support until you can make a good showing at one tournaments and prove your good enough to compete. This could be you, and planning to get to the top is full of challenges so understand what you're getting into as this quest for the big stage has changed many lives and challenged the best; so how good are you?

Is the chance to stand up on the big stage really worth it? Did the few local tournaments you won really set you apart to become one of the best so your dreams can be realized; it's going to be the biggest adventure of your life if you try it, just understand what is ahead!
