BASSMASTER – A Real Card – The mad scientist

duncan_picI had a great time at ICAST a couple of weeks ago. It was fun getting to see all the new products and spending time with my sponsors. Most of my time was spent with Floatback Lures and Pinnacle Fishing. The highlight of the week for me was working with Floatback Lures’ inventor Duncan Robertson, aka: the mad scientist.

He is the type of guy that just makes people smile and laugh wherever he goes. We were out to dinner one night, and he was having a hard time reading his menu and was giving our server grief over it. She patiently tried to walk him through the different items of the menu. Picking at her, he said “You are just confusing me even more.  I am going to have to get my glasses out!” Duncan put his glasses on and looked at the server, and loudly and abruptly scooted his seat back. She was starting to wonder what had happened, when he yelled, “Gosh! You’re beautiful! I never knew I was talking to such a beautiful lady!” We all laughed, and it made our server’s day; she smiled the rest of the evening.
