Elwood, Ind.-based Red Gold Inc. recently announced a 2012 title sponsorship with professional angler Todd Hollowell of Fishers, Ind. Hollowell will fish the Walmart FLW Tour in 2012 and will sport the bright and beautiful Red Gold logo and boat-wrap design. Fans will also see Red Gold and Hollowell at the popular FLW Outdoors Expo at FLW Tour Majors events.

Hollowell is an up-and-coming pro that has successfully worked his way up the ranks with FLW Outdoors and earned his spot for the 2012 FLW Tour. In 2002, Hollowell began competing as a co-angler in the BFL Music City Division, where he won the points title and advanced to the 2003 BFL All-American championship. He quickly advanced to the Boater Division, where just a few years later he qualified for the 2006 BFL All-American. In 2011, Hollowell fished his first full pro circuit in the EverStart Central Division where he finished sixth in the points and qualified for the EverStart Series Championship. Hollowell has a strong track record including numerous regional titles, seven top-10 finishes in 36 events with FLW, and he appears to have a bright future with the FLW Tour.

“This is an exciting opportunity for me to advance to the highest level in the sport of professional bass fishing with FLW Outdoors,” said Hollowell. “Red Gold is a great partner that I’m honored to represent. Growing up in Central Indiana, I’m very familiar with their great tomato products. Tomatoes are healthy and versatile in many meals, from chili to meatloaf, and people love Red Gold and their products. They also make great salsa and ketchup products that I’ve grown to love over the years.”
