PRESS RELEASE-----------July 14, 2016
2017 WALMART FLW TOUR SCHEDULE
In what has become an annual tradition at FLW, the 2017 Walmart FLW Tour schedule was announced at a press conference and industry gathering held Thursday on the show floor at ICAST in Orlando, Fla.
A crew of six Walmart FLW Tour pros joined FLW Weighmaster Chris Jones for the announcement. One-by-one, each pro was handed a sealed envelope containing the location and date of one of the six 2017 regular-season Tour events, which he then revealed to the crowd. In attendance were many of the world’s best anglers, tackle manufacturers and outdoor media.
Additional details regarding rules, entry dates and payouts will be announced later this year.
