Ray Brazier is a veteran tournament angler with 25+ years’ experience. He gained recognition in the early years as the engineer that could tweak a boat to its fastest speed. He was surrounded by some of the fastest people in the world on water such as Jerry Jaco and Darrus Allison. When B.A.S.S. introduced the WFC- World Championship Fishing- of course Ray, was among those chosen. In the first event, anglers fished the first half of the day and then with the same boat, ran a slalom course, with the fastest time around the course winning the event. That first WFC paid $200,000! From that Ray went on to work with Earl Bentz and his team of seven Triton Pro Staffers and was eventually hired by Honda as a performance engineer. He has worked with propeller companies and other performance related industries all over the US because of his skills that are in such high demand.
