FLW Outdoors, a leading tournament fishing organization, announced that Ranger Boats signed a multiyear contract extension as the exclusive boat sponsor of FLW and its premier tournament trails, which include 191 events in 2011.

Ranger Boats, a longtime partner and supporter of tournament fishing, has supported FLW since its inception, making this its 16th year as the official boat of FLW.

“To have Ranger Boats demonstrate this type of commitment says a lot about their dedication to being the premier bass and walleye boat manufacturer in the world,” FLW chairman Irwin Jacobs said in a statement. “FLW and Ranger Boats have been together since the beginning, and we have enjoyed growing together and making professional bass and walleye fishing the exciting and marketable products they are today.”

As part of the sponsorship, Ranger Boats will retain exclusive exposure across all platforms of FLW, including its tournaments, FLW’s multiple websites, FLW Outdoors Magazine and various FLW events.

“We have such a tremendous history with FLW,” Ranger Boats president Randy Hopper said in a statement. “From the very first tournaments, we’ve shared a vision dedicated to the growth and conservation of the sport of fishing. Our Ranger Cup contingency program continues to deliver the highest rewards to Ranger owners across the country, and we’re fortunate to have been a part of so many advancements and opportunities in angling over the years.”
