FLW ISSUES OPEN LETTER TO ANGLERS

Posted by Z3 MEDIA STAFF on 09/20/2018

On Thursday, Kathy Fennel, President of Operations and Trisha Blake, President of Marketing for FLW, published an open letter to FLW anglers in response to questions that the organization has been fielding about FLW's response to the recent addition of the MLF Pro Bass Tour and changes for the 2019 Bassmaster Elite Series.  

The open letter begins with the following: 

"It’s an exciting time to be a professional angler. Major League Fishing has brought new energy into the sport, and B.A.S.S. has responded with a significant contribution to its Elite Series payouts. It’s unlike anything the sport has experienced since the introduction of the FLW Tour in 1996, and we applaud both organizations’ commitment to top-tier professionals.

As a result of these changes, we’ve been asked how FLW is going to respond, and the answer is: We aren’t. We are committed to a sustainable model that serves our 50,000+ tournament anglers, from the FLW Tour through the Bass Pro Shops FLW High School Fishing Opens, in addition to our millions of fans who visit FLWFishing.com and FLW social media channels each year."
