a "Harry & Charley Certified Week-End
Semi- Pro" and a successful outdoor writer. He guides
special parties for bass about 20 times a year. Jim has
approximately 300 published pieces and has written for most
fishing major publications (BassMaster, Bass'N,
etc., etc.). His most current endeavor is 'The Hungry (but,
lazy) Man's Recipe Book and Other Assorted Stuff',
due out whenever he has the money to publish it. Readers
who know him say Jim 'writes like he talks and
knows his stuff'.

Ala., one of the first 'filmed on location' programs.
He prepared two freshwater fishing courses for the University
of Alabama. In 1975, he and another individual started
