Category : INDUSTRY NEWS
(Elk Grove, CA – January 29, 2016) – FLW Tour pro Kevin Stewart has decided to sit out the 2016 FLW Tour season and will stay home to focus on his business.
“I really wish I was fishing the Tour again for sure” Stewart said, “but I need to get my business back going again, get my finances organized and secure a Tour title sponsor to get back in 2017.
Stewart has secured support from UnderCover Truck Bed Covers (UnderCover Sportsman) and BedRug Next Generation Bedliners (BedRug Outdoors) to fish the Western Division of the Costa FLW Series, California Tournament Trail, WONBASS NorCal Open and WONBASS U.S. Open.
“I’ve been with BedRug for a year now and adding UnderCover is really a bonus because they both have amazing products that I truly believe in and trust” Stewart added.
“Adding Kevin will be a great benefit on the lake, the ramp, at shows and thru social media because he does believe so much in our products,” said UnderCover Sportsman brand manager Westin Yancey. “We are also excited to be working with Kevin to help build more brand recognition and product knowledge for both companies.”
Stewart’s tow vehicle is equipped with an UnderCover Flex folding truck bed cover, SwingCase swing-out toolboxes and BedRug Bedliner.
“The combination of these truck accessories keeps all the gear I travel with dry, secure and organized plus adding value to my truck.” Stewart added.
Stewart also said that he was very thankful to maintain his relationship with the following sponsor partners: Damiki Fishing Tackle, The Hitch Defender, Phoenix Boats, Mercury Marine, Raymarine, Power Pole, Seaguar, STORMR, iRod and Endless Possibili-tees.
BedRug is well known throughout the aftermarket, a name synonymous with high quality and innovation. Located in Old Hickory, Tennessee, BedRug got its start as a manufacturer of TPO foam composites. TPO foams offer a broad range of performance attributes – ranging from softness and flexibility to thermal stability – it is a closed cell construction, which will not absorb moisture, and is similar to the foam used in life jackets. It can be fabricated into a variety of parts that are suitable for exterior applications. Most importantly, it can be laminated to other substrates – and in BedRug’s case, those additional materials include 100% polypropylene plastic non-woven “carpet” and the TPO composite that creates BedTred.
