Bassmaster Elite Series Pro Lee Livesay

Lee Joins Finch Nasty Pro Team in 2019!

Finch Nasty Bait Co. has added Bassmaster Elite Series Pro and Lake Fork Guide Lee Livesay to the Professional Staff of talented anglers that represent the Finch Nasty brand.

Lee's extensive experience on a variety of fisheries, proven track record of consistency at all levels of competition, and great character factored into our decision to seek a multi-year partnership with Lee. Lee has cashed checks in 60% of the Bassmaster Opens he's fished, and he is in a great position to teach anglers how to catch more fish on our lures through his full-time guide business on Lake Fork. Lee's guide customer constantly give positive feedback and praise his ability to locate and catch giant bass. In addition, Lee is a great resource for product design and testing due to the amount of time he spends on the water and the quality of bass he is consistently around.

Like many of the top anglers on Lake Fork and in North Texas, Lee has learned that the high quality and attention to detail in the Finch Nasty product line is an important factor in landing Lake Fork's battle-tested lunkers. Lee is an avid "Thumper-thrower" and will be using the new Glade Blade and Shellshock Flipping Jig extensively in 2019 and beyond. He will also have a lot of say on future lure designs and the components used in future products. The next time you see Lee, we hope you'll use the opportunity to congratulate him and pick his brain on how to be more successful with our baits.
