If we're lucky, we love our job. If we don't, we're sometimes lucky enough to have a hobby we love. If we're REALLY fortunate, that hobby is also the way we earn our living. Charlie Brewer of Lawrenceburg, TN loved to fish, and he turned that love into a business known around the world. His son is in charge now, but still has the same love his father did. Rob Wilds met Charlie Brewer Jr. at the Slider Lure Company in Lawrenceburg.
