Meet Sondra Rankin, an angler, a hunter, a country singer, a goodwill ambassador, a role model citizen, a mentor, an outdoors woman, and on top of all that a single mom.
Sondra was born in Paducah, Kentucky on September 8th, 1978 and resides there still, along with her daughter Faith Noelle. Sport fishing and the outdoors peaked her interests at a very early age. She recalls those memorable early childhood memories as a young girl with her dad, who taught her all the basic skills. Sondra is a very avid bowhunting enthusiast and enjoys spending the fall and winter months chasing whitetail and hunting for waterfowl!
Sondra is a bass tournament angler who has competed on the FLW tour, the most prestigious bass circuit in America today. Aside from her hectic schedule, Sondra is proud to be the Western Kentucky Youth Director for the Fishing For Kids Foundation. She is also the host of the hit new ProPatterns.com series, "Exposed, Pros on Tour." Sondra has collaborated with Nashville Recording Label, OUTDOOR Music Group, (www.outdoormusic.com) and is currently working on new material to be released in the near future!
On March 13th, 2009, Sondra & her crew went to Iraq for a 10 day tour visiting US troops. Their mission: Operation Catch Fish, which involved hosting a casting competition, a fishing tournament, singing the national anthem, all for the support of our troops.
What's next for Sondra? To continue to be the best mom she can be, win a major fishing championship, and to continue pursuing her singing ambitions. On a more personal and inspirational level, Sondra's goal and mission is to get more women & children involved in fishing and God's Great Outdoors!
