Midwest finesse from the bank; an update

This a note to refer readers to examine the voluminous  and astute observations and comments penned by Grant Williams of DeKalb, Illinois, that appeared in the comment section below the  blog entitled "Midwest finesse from the bank."

Here's a link to that blog:   http://www.in-fisherman.com/2012/07/18/midwest-finesse-from-the-bank/

Williams is an avid finesse angler, who walks the shorelines and catches an impressive array of largemouth bass from some very trying public waterways.

In the future, we are hoping to include some of the tactics of shoreline walkers who the ply the waters that stipple Prospect Park in Brooklyn, N.Y., as well as the public parks in  Phoenix, Arizona, and elsewhere

When we began writing blogs on this site 11 months, one of our unannounced aims was to develop a spot where serious and talented recreational anglers could intelligently express their insights, and we are indeed thankful that Bill Richert, Brent Frazee, Brian Waldman, Casey Kidder, Clyde Holscher, Dwight Keefer, Ethan Dhuyvetter, Grant Williams, Tom Scott and others have contributed their perspectives.

On July 25, Grant Williams posted two detailed reports about his endeavors to the Finesse News Network.  Those reports are posted in the comment section below this blog.
