I saw this in the Texas Fishing Forum and thought of Clovis "Peavine" Pinion as someone to nominate.
I was wondering if there is a local fishing club or organization who might be able to follow up…
I remember Mr. Pinion from the early 1950s on as an avid fisherman and the mover and shaker of the noon time radio program on KSST. I hope there is someone there in SS with a more complete knowledge of his contribution to fishing and outdoor broadcasting willing to follow up on this. I can say he was a great influence in my own long career in the TV and Radio fishing business.
