Bain-Moore is going up against the guys. A 28-year old angler from Australia, she will become the first woman to compete in the 39-year history of the Bassmaster Classic, the Super Bowl of pro bass fishing. The three-day tournament starts Friday, Feb. 20 on Louisiana's Red River. Bain spoke to TIME's Sean Gregory about her first catch, the sport's old-boys network, and the, er, logistical challenges facing female fishing pros.
