FLW Pro anglers will visit Cordova High School and talk to the students about the various aspects of science and technology that apply to the world of professional fishing.  Topics will include: Mathematics, biology on the water, advance sonar technology and also the business side of fishing.  Anglers will talk to the seniors and fishing team for 40 minutes.

Leading up to the visit, (now until Friday, March 1, 2013), Cordova seniors and the Fishing Team are encouraged to write and submit an essay (500 words or less) on the following topic: “How does science, technology, engineering and math apply to the sport of fishing?”.

All students who submit an essay to Allie Gibbs at FLW, by 3 p.m. CST, Friday, March 1, will receive an FLW hat.  The essays will be judged by members of the FLW Foundation Board of Directors and two winners will be announced at the angler visit on March 6.  The two winners will each receive an autographed FLW team fishing jersey as well as a half day of fishing with an FLW pro on Lewis Smith Lake on Sunday, March 10 along with a parent or guardian.

Bohannan signs with Denali rods


Denali Rods has announced the signing of FLW Tour angler Greg Bohannan, of Rogers, AR to their national pro staff. An Ozarks region expert, Bohannan has amassed over $450,000 in career winnings over his six year professional career.
   
“The thing I’m most blown away with is the Denali rods sensitivity and minimal weight,” Bohannan said. “I think those factors, along with durability are the most important features of a rod, so I’m looking forward to a long relationship with Denali.”
 
“We are very proud of the professional team we have assembled to represent our brand, and Greg is another fantastic addition,” said Scott Estes, president of Denali Rods. “Once we started talking, it was apparent that we share some of the same goals both on and off the water. We’re excited to add Greg to the staff and look forward to him having a great 2013 season.”

Sunglasses for all occasions

Good sunglasses are valuable fishing tools. In low light they can help you spot obstacles under the water and at the surface when you’re running down the lake; and in bright sunlight they can help you see cover or fish. The Typhoon Mariner is my choice because it fits my face better and doesn’t let in much ambient light. I have pairs with three different lens colors for different light conditions. At first light, I wear the sunset brown, which really brings out contrasts. Later in the morning, I’ll switch to horizon grey, which is a good all-around choice for most light conditions. When it gets up in the day and the sun is really bright overhead, I’ll go to the mirrored meridian green lenses. They cut through the reflection on the surface and help me see deeper into the water. I keep glasses with those three lenses in my boat and they cover any light situation. Another thing that I think is important is to use the soft cloth packaged with sunglasses to clean them off. Lenses will last a lot longer without getting scratched up if you do that instead of trying to wipe them off on your shirt or a rag.
