FLW learned today that former FLW Walleye pro Tommy Skarlis of Denver, Iowa, passed away after a battle with brain cancer. He was 55.

Skarlis, the 2008 FLW Walleye Tour Champion, competed on the FLW Walleye circuit for 12 seasons, earning 10 career top-10 finishes and two career victories. In addition to being an incredible angler, Skarlis will be remembered as a kind and intelligent promoter that cared deeply for his family, friends and fans. 

FLW extends its deepest condolences to the entire Skarlis family, and all of Tommy’s friends and fans.
