A few faves with Fletcher Shryock

No pressure this time out from BassFIRST. Nope, we'll save ever brutal Three Questions for another time. Strangely enough, there are three questions, but not the type of hard-hitting journalism BassFIRST is known for.

Instead, Spiderwire pro Fletcher Shryock decided to let us know about a few of his favorite things. Hopefully rain drops on roses and whiskers on kittens are not among them. Read on and find out.

DL - What is your favorite sport to watch?

FS - I have two. I like college football. It is so much more unpredictable than the NFL. It's not overproduced and boring like the NFL.

The other is supercross. Since I formerly competed in that sport, I can watch and see all the nuance a regular fan can't.

It's amazing to see how fast they've gotten since I left the sport. I respect the hell out of it.

DL - What is the favorite destination you've been to on the Elite Series?

FS - I'd say Lake Havasu. First off, it's a big western reservoir. Totally unlike anything I've ever fished before. The fishing is really good and the views, let's just say, are great. I can understand why it's a popular destination during spring break.

DL - What is your favorite way to fish?

FS - Flipping heavy vegetation. I load up 40-to 50-pound Spiderwire and go at it.

I use lighter line than some, but it's for more versatility. I just retie a little more often. The smaller line casts further and doesn't negatively impact the movement of lures.

Plus, I'm not usually going to break off a bass on line that heavy.
