KANSAS CITY, Mo. -- As Rick Clunn enters the twilight of his pro fishing career, he finds himself in uncharted waters.
For the first time, he is just one of the pack on the Bassmaster circuit, not the man to beat.
And for a guy who once dominated the sport like no other, that's not always easy to take.
"I've always made my career living by Robert Frost's words: 'Two roads diverge in the woods. I take the one less-traveled,' " said Clunn. "I found success by taking the path less-traveled; doing something different than the other fishermen did.
"But that's not as easy anymore. With the increased knowledge of today's fishermen, they figure things out. And a lot of times you have to fish in a crowd if you want to compete. And I won't do that."Story:
