Some of the country’s greatest anglers will be in Cleveland June 26 for a personal appearance just prior to the annual FLW tour event on Lake Chickamauga, June 27-30.

Don Ledford Chevrolet will host Chevy Pro Night from 5 to 7 p.m. The public is invited to come for an evening of fun and meet Chevy Team anglers Luke Clausen, Anthony Gagliardi, Dion Hibdon, Jimmy Houston, Larry Nixon, Bryan Thrift and Jay Yelas.

The Chevy anglers will be signing autographs, answering questions and posing for photos with fans in attendance during the two-hour event at Don Ledford Chevrolet. The Chevy Team members have won a combined 18 tournaments and the group’s combined career earnings total more than $5.7 million in FLW competition. Hibdon and Clausen have already cemented their status as fishing legends having both won the Bassmaster Classic and Forrest Wood Cup while Gagliardi and Thrift are both looking to capture their second Angler of the Year titles in 2013.

Fans in attendance will have the chance to view the anglers’ FLW Chevy Suburbans and boats, and to show off their casting skills in the FLW casting game. Fans will also have the opportunity to ride in the Chevy Ranger boat simulator. Dinner with the pros will be provided during the two-hour event and fans may also register on-site for the opportunity to win a free BFL entry, a fishing trip on Lake Chickamauga and other great prizes. You must register and be present during the drawing to win.

FLW is the industry’s premier tournament-fishing organization providing anglers of all skill levels the opportunity to compete for millions in prize money nationwide in 2013 over the course of 220 tournaments across five tournament circuits, four of which provide an avenue to the sport’s richest payday and most coveted championship trophy — the Forrest Wood Cup.

FLW tournament fishing can be seen on the Emmy-nominated “FLW” television show and is broadcast to more than 559 million households worldwide, making it the most widely distributed weekly outdoors-sports television show in the world. FLW is committed to providing a lifestyle experience that is the “Best in Fishing, On and Off the Water.” For more information about FLW visit FLWOutdoors.com and look for FLW on Twitter, Facebook, Pinterest and YouTube.
