In an ongoing effort to provide as much interaction between world-class anglers and fishing fans as possible, FLWOutdoors.com has announced the seventh installment of FLW Live Reel Chat. On Tuesday, Nov. 15, at 3 p.m. Central time (4 p.m. EST), visitors to FLWOutdoors.com will get a chance to correspond directly with Pocola, Okla., native and bass-fishing specialist Sam Newby in a special live chat room format.
Newby, winner of the 2005 EverStart Series Championship, has quietly padded his resume with a list of extraordinary accomplishments since fishing the FLW Tour full time in 2002. Currently, Newby boasts more than $480,000 in career earnings and owns 10 top-10 finishes at FLW Outdoors events. In addition to collecting $140,000 for winning the most recent EverStart Championship, Newby also holds two additional titles – finishing first at the FLW Tour Lake Champlain event in 2002 and first at the EverStart Series Central Division event on Fort Gibson in 2000. Newby’s FLW Outdoors career began back in 1996 when he started fishing the Wal-Mart BFL Okie Division.
