MEMPHIS, Tenn. -- When the pros from the Walmart FLW Tour on Pickwick Lake visited Tennessee for a week last July, you could have had an interesting debate about who was the best fisherman on the water.
A case could have been made for Arkansas legend Larry Nixon or former Bassmaster Classic winner Jay Yelas.
Perennial nice guy Mark Rose of Marion, Ark., certainly made a good case for himself when he won the event and took home the $125,000 first-place payday.
But as talented as those guys are, the best fishermen on the lake that week were the great blue herons wading slowly, patiently and majestically around the shadows.
They're the best fishermen on any lake, any week.
