The participation from the fans is unbelievable, and with the game being played all over the world, it has helped build the sport and bring recognition to the anglers and our partners," said Irwin Jacobs, chairman and chief executive of FLW Outdoors and the creator of FLW Fantasy Fishing, in a statement.
