Motormates USA proudly accepts Kathy Crowder into the fold; Kathy Crowder, Co-Angler Champion of 2008, joins Motormate's Pro-Satff.
So what happens when luck meets opportunity and you are prepared to take full advantage of both? You get to make an appearance on the weigh-in stand in front of hundreds of strangers and hope you're still there in three more days So who is this chick, Kathy Crowder, and how did she become the first female to win a BASS event outside of the Women's Bassmaster Tour?It's really my dad's fault. He taught me to fish as soon as I was big enough to hold a fishing pole. I caught my first fish on the pond at the Little Rock airbase when I was barely 3 years old, and I've been obsessed ever since. After dad retired from the Air Force, he moved us home to Arkansas.
It's there that my obsession grew.I would sit on the banks of local farm ponds and lakes with my dad fishing for bream, catfish and the occasional bass until the darkness and mosquitoes would chase us back home. I would read my dad's Bassmaster Magazine and secretly dream of fishing tournaments and doing fishing shows like Roland Martin and Bill Dance. So, when the opportunity came along to join my first bass club, I signed up and started my journey to my dream.
