Cool MSNBC Piece on FLW Tour

Check out this nice article on the growth of tournament fishing and sponsorship, it also has a streaming video from "On the Money"

They are America's most prized game fish. And today, catching the big one could
mean big money for members of the nation's fastest-growing tournament circuit.
Forget what you know about fishing: It's a whole new world out there.
"Today the FLW Outdoors is the world's largest tournament organization," according to Charley Evans, president and CEO of FLW Outdoors. "With 249 events covering 13 different tournament circuits covering five different species of fish, some
9,000 tournament entries and handing out almost $40 million in prize money."

Maybe Fox News will do a piece on ESPN/BASS :)
