Angler takes on all comers

While we're in the deep freeze for the next several days, you might as well skip fishing and read about one of the smartest gimmicks a cable TV network has ever devised to attract more viewers.
ESPN2 found a brash New England fisherman who is willing to bet he can whip you in a one-on-one fishing contest even in water that he's never been to before. When the contest is done, ESPN2 will telecast it.
It even has one segment that features billiards for the rights to a trolling motor.
