Angler. Author. Entertainer. Joe Thomas has done it all.
From competing at the highest levels of professional bass fishing to authoring the definitive account of life as a pro angler to hosting today's most popular television series focusing on bass fishing, there's a common thread that runs through Joe Thomas' life. It's not hard to imagine a young Joe growing up as a kid in southwestern Ohio with dreams of one day becoming a bass pro. But it is difficult to imagine that even he could foresee the impact that his 30 year career would have on the sport.
Today, Joe Thomas has achieved iconic status as an angler, author and television series host. Submit your entry to win a fishing trip with him!
Reel in the Outdoors actually started as an idea several years ago. While there are plenty of great fishing shows on the tube, Joe wanted to do something different. He wanted to see why Americans absolutely and undeniably love fishing.
So he set out, camera, microphone and a rough idea in hand, to find out what makes America so interested and intent on angling. What we found not only surprised us, it entertained us, too. Not only did we get a chance to spend time with some of the top anglers in the country on their favorite body of water, but we also got to meet people who are passionate about fishing.
This season on Stihl's Reel in the Outdoors with Joe Thomas, he'll travel from Mexico to Alaska, fish farm ponds and streams, chase bass, king salmon, muskie, catfish and whatever else will bite, and try to pass along tips, hints and secrets he's learned from over 25 years in pro tournaments to help you enjoy angling more than ever before.
