Roland Martin is one of the most successful bass fishermen of our time. Roland’s ability to read water began at a very early age, eventually achieving him multiple tournaments wins and three Hall of Fame inductions. He is the host of the Fishing with Roland Martin series and was one of the first bass anglers to promote catch and release fishing in the 70’s.
At almost eighty years old, Roland has had his ups and downs while dabbling in television, ownership of a marina, a guiding career, the military, public figure, and co-owner of T3 with fellow angling legends Jimmy Houston and Bill Dance.
On this episode of Anchored, I sit down with Roland to ask him more about these pursuits. In 2004, his tournament wins alone had exceeded one million dollars and he was showing no signs of slowing down. It’s no secret that there’s a major contrast between career bass anglers and fly-fishers, and I was curious to learn more about it.
