Benton, Arkansas’ Brennan Bosley polished off a stellar year on the Wal-Mart FLW Tour by earning the Eagle Claw Hook Set Award for an eye-popping catch at the season-ending championship.
Bosley racked up a runner-up finish early in the season on South Carolina’s Lake Murray and followed it up less than a month later with a seventh-place finish on Alabama’s Pickwick Lake in early March. Back in Bama in early August, the four-year tour pro powered his way to a ninth-place finish on Logan Martin Lake in his first-ever FLW Championship appearance.
It was Bosley’s season-ending performance that paved the way to the Hook Set Award, despite his having been pitted against Brent Ehrler, the championship winner, and FLW Tour standout David Dudley. Those casting online ballots in the contest handed the Hook Set Award to Bosley, based on fishing footage that appeared both on the “FLW Outdoors” TV show on FSN (Fox Sports Net) as well as at FLWOutdoors.com. For his impressive hook set, he earned a $500 Wal-Mart gift card.
Eagle Claw Hook Set Award voters were able to choose from video footage of three pro anglers’ hook sets as captured by camera crews during the Aug. 2-5 Wal-Mart FLW Tour Championship on Logan Martin near Birmingham, Ala. The contest and award are presented by Eagle Claw.
FSN provides FLWOutdoors.com with video footage of three of the best hook sets from each FLW Tour event throughout the season. The hook sets are seen on FSN’s “FLW Outdoors” program, which airs Sundays at 11 a.m. Eastern, and are then viewable at FLWOutdoors.com. After voting has closed for a given contest, the winner will be announced on television and through this Web site.
The Hook Set Award contest is free and open to anyone 21 years of age or older who wants to go online to vote for their favorite footage. Use this article to link to the contest or access it through the graphic link midway down FLWOutdoors.com’s home page.
