When FLW Outdoors announced it would enter into the world of competitive saltwater angling, many of America’s largest and most well-respected companies immediately realized the potential to reach a new segment of the angling audience.

“We remain completely dedicated to doing for competitive saltwater fishing what we already have done for bass and walleye anglers,” FLW Outdoors Chairman Irwin L. Jacobs said. “That is to take competitive saltwater angling to a new level. FLW Outdoors has proven that professional angling provides a substantial opportunity for many of the world’s premier consumer brands to market their products to anglers, families and fans. Between our new television partnership with FSN (Fox Sports Net) and the inaugural seasons for the FLW Kingfish Tour and FLW Redfish Series, 2005 promises to be a momentous year.”

As FLW Outdoors sponsors, these brands will be featured in a variety of media formats, most notably the “FLW Outdoors” television program on FSN. Sponsors also benefit from prominent advertisements and feature articles in FLW Outdoors Magazine and at FLWOutdoors.com. Further publicity opportunities at FLW Outdoors include sponsor-specific product displays in the Family Fun Zone, signage at tournaments, angler-award programs, and other promotional and public-relations materials. Sponsors will also have the opportunity to use the “Proud Sponsor of FLW Outdoors” logo on their products.

FLW Outdoors is the world’s leading marketer of competitive fishing. Wal-Mart has served as the title sponsor of FLW Outdoors since 1997. For a complete list of FLW Outdoors sponsors and more information about them, please visit FLWOutdoors.com’s sponsor page.
