Over the course of the offseason, Patrick Willis and Randy Moss have become “buddies,” hook, line and sinker.
On the surface, the two have multiple Pro Bowl and All-Pro selections in common, but they’ve quickly discovered a mutual love for angling after a recent conversation following a 49ers Football School workout. Because of their shared interest, it didn’t take long for the two to plan an outing.
“He’s my best fishing buddy,” Willis said about Moss, a seven-time Pro Bowl receiver. “We went fishing a couple of times now and I’ve out-fished him both times.”
Willis said Moss boasted about his prowess with the rod and real, prompting Willis to call a friend, former San Jose Shark and current host of the Canadian fishing show, Fish TV, Owen Nolan. So the trio, with a combined 17 All-Star appearances between them in their respective sports, headed to a fishing hole near Nolan’s home.
“He gave me an open invitation to go fishing whenever I want so we’ve gone up there a couple of times,” Willis said.
Always a competitor, Willis made sure to point out that he caught six fish to Moss’ three. Thanks to Willis’ Instagram account, San Francisco’s five-time Pro Bowler was able to prove it.
