Jason Christie's first approach to tournament practice is to try flipping and pitching. If he can find concentrations of fish that will bite that presentation, he's got a good chance to getting tournament-winning fish. You won't always catch a lot of fish flipping and pitching, but, sometimes just a few bites will get you a big bag. This bass fishing class seminar was filmed a few years ago in Oklahoma, and has recently been digitally remastered in full HD into a single 47-minute video. Learn from Jason Christie all the important fundamentals, tips and tactics for catching bass, having an effective practice and winning tournaments with the flipping and pitching techniques.
