Breyn Latimer 's First Bass

Breyn Latimer 's First  Bass

On May 24, Brian Latimer of Belton, South Carolina, filed a photograph and caption on the Finesse News Network. He announced that his three-year-old son, Breyn, caught his first bass.

Breyn caught it on a Z-Man Fishing Products' The Deal Finesse T.R.D. affixed to a chartreuse 1/10-ounce Finesse ShroomZ jig, which is a standard Midwest finesse rig.

Brian is a professional angler who competes on Bassmaster and FLW circuits, and he has recently become a Midwest finesse devotee. The caption to the photograph  noted: "This made my year. I wanted him to catch his own fish on his own cast ...,  and it finally happened."  Brian credited the Midwest finesse rig as expediting this quest.

The origins of Midwest finesse fishing stems from  Chuck Woods' creation of the Beetle and Beetle Spin. Until his death in the 1970s, Woods lived in the Kansas City metropolitan area, and nowadays he is heralded as forefather of Midwest finesse fishing.
