Fox reels in fishing tale

Atomic turns up bass on pic

Fox Atomic has landed feature rights to “Fishing on the Edge: The Mike Iaconelli Story,” the autobiography of a star on the competitive bass fishing circuit. Book, written by Iaconelli with Andrew Kamenetzky and Brian Kamenetzky, follows Iaconelli’s background as a child in New Jersey to prominence in the world of pro fishing. Iaconelli, one of the few non-Southern competitors, cemented his star status by winning the 2003 Citgo Bassmaster Classic. He used that victory to become the sport’s best-known figure, with multiple appearances on ESPN talkshows and magazine profiles. He’s been a relentless promoter for the sport via his brash personality, “power” fishing style and “Never give up” catchphrase.
