Bass Pro Shops started in 1972 when Johnny Morris started selling fishing tackle out of his dad's Brown Derby Liquor Store in Springfield, Missouri. His father, John A. Morris, was a World War II veteran and often took the family hunting and fishing. Johnny Morris has said his parents, Genny Morris and John A. Morris, taught him to love fishing, hunting, and the outdoors.
