BASS KNUCKLES LOOKS TO KNOCK OUT CANCER

   My name is Jacob Allen, one of the owners of Bass Knuckles Clothing. I am a Cancer survivor back in 1996 (age 19). I was following my dream to become a professional bass fisherman. I had some pain on my knee and after a few trips to the doctor, they found a tumor in my right leg. There was no choice but to amputate my leg in duration of 14 months of treatment. My passion for fishing was a big part of my life that this decision took a big change in my future. In between treatments I would hit the water as much as I physically could. Therefore,  I used fishing as a tool to push me threw my battle. I remember in between each cast I would  throw up and get sun blister because of the chemotherapy. I realized that nothing can change my happiness for fishing.  I do thank all my family an friends for all the help during this time. They were a huge part of my path to recovery.

Bass Knuckles has decided to come out with a shirt to raise some money for cancer patients, research and cures. Please so stay tuned more details.

P.S. Please pray for Mario P. Salas (SoCal Badfish) I met him at  a local fishing show. He is battling cancer and staying strong.
