As soon as I read the title of the post on Mike Iaconelli’s page – my mind started racing with ideas! A friend sent me the link only a few days before entries were due which didn’t give me a lot of time.
The focus of the audition is bass fishing, yet unfortunately bass aren’t in season where I live, so I gave the phone number listed on the website a call. They said that I can still apply, and just talk about myself, how I got into fishing, do my best and be funny. That I could do!
It rained Saturday (my 25th birthday!!), so on Sunday I headed out in the boat for a few hours to shoot some clips of me talking on the water, and then showing off a few of my favourite techniques. Needless to say, I got what I needed and then came home to start editing. I have plenty of fishing videos and photos from the past couple years, so I included them in there as well. (Ice fishing, deep sea fishing and bass fishing of course!)
I am quite happy with the final product! I mailed it off tonight to New York, so who knows what will happen now. All I can say is, I think this will be a great show regardless of whether or not I qualify and I will surely be watching!
