Hero (explain):    My papaw, Ralph McKinney. He was the first person to introduce bass fishing to me. He taught me how to use a baitcaister when I was 5 years old. He never fished tournaments, just loved to fish!

He was diagnosed with leukemia when I was 7. We fished every chance we could for the next 3 years. He lost his battle at age 61. I fish in his memory…….
