• Skeet Reese with big golden dorado

    by  • January 12, 2013 • Uncategorized • 0 Comments

    Skeet Reese, one of the world’s finest bass anglers, looks happy enough with a huge golden dorado, an even more aggressive species than the largemouths he’s used to catching. Skeet, who won the Bassmaster Classic in 2009, has just been on holiday at La Zona resort on the Uruguay river, home of the world’s biggest golden dorado. All the world records have been taken there. I’m going there in November, so Skeet, who has qualified for the Classic again this year, sent me this picture to show me what I can expect. If I do half as well as one of the world’s greatest lure anglers, I’ll be more than happy.

    About

    Editor and publisher of Classic Angling magazine. Founder member of UK Angling Writers' Association and current chairman. Former winner of Writer of the Year. I wrote a weekly angling column for The Independent for 23 years, having previously written columns for The Guardian and Sunday Mirror. If it swims, I'll fish for it: marlin or mackerel, trout or tench, salmon or snook. I've written several books on fishing, from one for the Duke of Edinburgh's award to the notorious Catchmore Sharks (don't look at the pictures) and Bob Nudd's autobiography, How to be the World's Best Fisherman. I love exotic travel for fishing (been to Mongolia and Ecuador, the Great Barrier Reef and Arunachal Pradesh) and wish I could afford to do such trips more often. My favourite fish? Anything with fins, though I have a special love for mahseer, and I'm chairman of The Mahseer Trust.
