ROGERS, Arkansas – It was hard not to root for FLW Tour veteran Scott Canterbury as the Beaver Lake FLW Tour event played out in mid-April. Canterbury is one of those potential fishing juggernauts that the world outside the FLW Tour knows very little about: 36 career Top 10s, over $1 million in tournament earnings, second place twice in the past four years at the Forrest Wood Cup.
Canterbury finally hoisted his very first FLW Tour trophy at Beaver Lake, and Bass Nomad was in the front row. Here’s what it all looked like.
