The Return of The Two Tour Pro?

A few years ago it seemed like the main professional bass fishing tours, The Bassmaster Elite Series and the FLW Tour were against each other. The tournament schedules started to suspiciously mirror each other, with overlapping dates and spread out locations. This forced the pros to pick one side or the other. It looks like that has finally changed.

The schedules came out this summer and there was just one conflicting date, the Bassmaster Smith Mountain event and the FLW's Chickamauga event in April. FLW just announced today that they moved the event back a week and switched venues . This definitely opens the door for some pro's to fish both trails.

It was interesting how Hackney and Ike, both Elite pros, placed 1st and 2nd in the recent FLW Forrest Wood Cup. Now we might get the chance to see a whole year of "Elites" fishing against FLW's finest.

Who would you like to see fishing the FLW Tour? How about the return of Aaron Martens, KVD, Dean Rojas, Tommy Biffle, Takahiro Omori, Gary Klein..even Mr. Rick Clunn. All of them have shined on both tours. It will be interesting to see who comes back to FLW.
