Rick L. Bramwell is 74 years old and began writing for the Anderson Herald Bulletin in 1972. He likes to hunt small game, deer, turkey and morel mushrooms. Bramwell’s 174-7/8 typical whitetail is the largest ever taken in Madison County. He used to compete in Red Man and BASS Federation tournaments, but is now content to fish ponds and small lakes for bass and panfish. For most of 43 years Bramwell has coached Baseball and softball. He has three grown children and resides in Madison County, near Pendleton.
Bramwell braves warm water in search of redear and bass, but a medical problem close to home puts everything on pause. Luckily, everyone’s OK, and the fishing wasn’t bad either.
Bramwell and friends apply time, effort and science to resurrect a body of water infested by an invasive species. The results took time, but the story shows the potential of sportsmen and nature working in concert.
