Casey Scanlon teams up with Elite Anglr
FLW Tour pro Casey Scanlon has joined the growing ranks of the Elite Anglr Athlete program to promote the lifestyle endorsed by the apparel company.
A longtime association with Al McCulloch, co-owner of Elite AngIr, prompted Scanlon to join the Elite Anglr program. “Al is a good businessman and he has a good concept,” Scanlon said. “I want to support him and the things he does because he has supported me and helped me in fishing and in the media. He told me he had started a company and I knew it would be successful so I decided to jump on board and help him out in any way I could. They have got some great ideas and some really cool clothing out right now and they are coming out with a lot of new products in the next couple of months.”
The Missouri pro and Lake of the Ozarks guide has fished the FLW Tour for three years. He has competed in an FLW Cup and recorded six Top 10 finishes in FLW events. His highest finish was third place in a 2011 Bass Fishing League (BFL) tournament at Lake of the Ozarks. Scanlon also fished the Bassmaster Elite Series for five years from 2012 to 2016 and has competed in 60 B.A.S.S. events including the 2013 Bassmaster Classic. He won the 2012 Bassmaster Central Open at Table Rock Lake and finished second in the 2011 Bassmaster Central Open at Lewisville Lake and the 2017 Bassmaster Central Open at Grand Lake O’ the Cherokees.
“Casey has always been driven by the desire to be the best from his guide service at Lake of the Ozarks to the FLW Tour,” McCulloch said. “Family is an important aspect at our company and Casey has a great support staff with his family. We hope to add to that by bringing him on board. He has successfully promoted other products in the fishing world and we believe he can help grow the Elite Anglr brand.
“Casey has a huge following and represents what we want at Elite Anglr,” McCulloch said. “Casey will wear our products out on tour and be involved in on-site promotion at events throughout the year. We look forward to a long relationship with Casey.”
Elite Anglr incorporates two sponsorship programs for anglers: Elite Anglr Athlete and Elite Anglr Family. The Athlete program includes MLF pros, Bassmaster Elite Series pros, FLW Tour pros, Costa and BFL anglers and competitors from regional circuits such as Anglers in Action, Alabama Bass Trail and Texas Team Trail. The Family program helps to develop and sponsor middle school, high school and college anglers.
