When you go to his website, hankparker.com, you see just how much influence he has had in the fishing community.

Hank’s professional fishing career begin in 1976 when he began fishing the National Bass Association Tournament Circuit, winning their national championship in his first season. The following two years he fished both the National Bass Association and American Bass Association. With this success and help from newly acquired sponsors, Hank began fishing the Bass Anglers Sportsmen’s Society (B.A.S.S.) Tournament Trail where he won the Bassmaster Classic in 1979 and 1989.

Also, he was the first angler to win the Grand Slam of Bass Fishing, which includes a B.A.S.S. qualifying tournament, the Classic, B.A.S.S. Angler of the Year title, and the B.A.S.S. SuperBass Tournament. Amazingly, Hank finished “in the money” in 76% of all the tournaments he fished during his B.A.S.S. career.

“Hank Parker’s Outdoor Magazine” television series launched in 1985 with national syndication. The following season the series moved to The Nashville Network. The Outdoor Life Network, The Outdoor Channel, Pursuit Channel and NBC Sports. For 2015, Hank’s show will air on OUTDOOR CHANNEL and PURSUIT CHANNEL.

However, it's not the success Hank Parker has had on the water or in the woods that will bring him to Eastwood Baptist Church near Haughton this coming Tuesday, September 19. It's the amazing testimony he has as a born again Christian.

He's become a true ambassador for God and his wit, honesty and knee-slapping humor have him speaking at approximately 40 churches like Eastwood every year.
