Evans continued “This tournament will carry the momentum established by the National Guard FLW College Fishing National Championship that will be held on Ft. Loudoun/Tellico lakes April 10-12, where the best collegiate teams will be competing for $100,000 and a chance to compete in the 2010 Forrest Wood Cup.”
