Many of you recognize the commentary on this blog from “Anthony” (I like to call him the A-Train), but what you don’t know is that Anthony started a new job this week as the director of communications with ESPN Outdoors and B.A.S.S.

Which brings up a couple important points. First, let there be no mistake that Anthony is a die-hard fly fishing fool; so the fly nation has officially infiltrated a mole in the inner sanctum of pro bass fishing. And second, assuming he stays a part of the Fly Talk community, this blog will be more “dialed” on hot bass topics than most, um, bass blogs!

Seriously, I hope you join me in wishing good luck and godspeed to a great friend, and an original Fly Talk “Fflogger,” Anthony Bartkowski.
