1997 Sam Rayburn Bassmaster Champion
I'm a good bit grayer these days.

Mike Metzler of The Colors of Bagley's








       I started building houses for Jim Walter Homes in 1970 at the young age of 16. Through my teens and early 20's, I would occasionally work brief stints away from the building trades, but always ended up back in the field it seemed I was best suited for. You can visit my other website METZ Remodeling and Home Improvement to learn a little about what I do that's almost as important as collecting Bagley lures.

       From 1991 through 2000 I scaled back METZ Remodeling and Home Improvement in order to compete as a full time touring pro on the Bassmaster Tournament Trail. My fishing career reached it's peak on December 8, 1997, when I won the Texas Bassmaster Invitational on Sam Rayburn Lake. I would again like to thank Mercury Marine and BassCat Boats for their sponsorship and support during the years I competed nationally. (Click on the picture to learn more about my tournament fishing career.

       The last few years my focus has been on family, my wife Sally and daughter Amy, as well as on my remodeling and home improvement company. Dreams of fishing glory will have to wait until my retirement.
