The 6th Annual Porter Wagoner Memorial Artists & Anglers Fishing Tournament on Old Hickory Lake in Hendersonville, Tenn., on May 31 brought out professional anglers and artists in search of bass, and included a formal dedication of Porter’s Pond at the 2013 Southern Living Idea House at Fontanel Mansion in White’s Creek, Tenn. Porters Pond is a new catch-and-release "fishin' hole" that celebrates country music legend Porter Wagoner's love of fishing, sponsored by Gary and Beverly Yamamoto of Gary Yamamoto Custom Baits.
