FLW Announces 2011 Tour Schedule
FLW Outdoors has announced the 2011 FLW Tour schedule. The 2011 FLW Tour will expand to 10 tournaments, plus the Forrest Wood Cup, the world championship of bass fishing.
"We are excited to expand the FLW Tour," said Charlie Evans, President and CEO of FLW Outdoors. "We have a long history of offering the best paybacks in the sport, and our new expanded schedule, with stops on some of the nation's top fisheries, will bring even more opportunity and visibility to our anglers, corporate supporters and for our fans."
The 2011 FLW Tour will consist of six FLW Tour Majors and four FLW Tour Opens. FLW Tour Majors, which will feature a 150-boat field, are open to professional anglers who enter all six tournaments. Pros fishing the FLW Tour Majors will receive priority when entering FLW Tour Opens and pros that enter all four FLW Tour Opens will receive priority over individual entrants. FLW Tour Opens will also feature a 150-boat field. Complete details regarding registration requirements will be available in the near future at FLWOutdoors.com or you can call (270) 252-1000.
