Our prayers are with everyone impacted by COVID-19 and those on the front line in the fight against it. FLW will continue to do its part and encourage all its dedicated members and fans to do the same by following Centers for Disease Control, federal, state and local guidelines to help prevent infection.

Fishing, with special attention to social distancing guidelines, is still open in most states, so we encourage everyone to get out on the water and fish responsibly as time permits.
