Spring Means FISHING in Shell Knob

Services for Real Estate Pros with Midamerica Referral Network

Springtime is a seven letter word in Shell Knob.  It is spelled  FISHING!! 

It can be Fly Fishing at Roaring River State Park, or Bass Fishing on Table Rock Lake with the FLW Tour.


 I've noticed boat traffic on Table Rock  this week, which is nice after a long cold winter.   Evidentally some of the FLW tournament participants are checking out the lake to find the most likely spots to catch  lunkers during the 4 day tournament set for March 3-6.


  BUT..... my big question of what do the initials "FLW " stand for, remains unanswered.  Google didn't know and ASK.Com didn't know.  The best I found was FLW standing for " Four Letter Word", so maybe that is what an angler says when a lunker escapes ?  FLW??

The FLW was scheduled for the Red River in Louisiana, but weather and bad conditions on the river  had them seeking other locations for this opener in their schedule. Hosted by the Branson/Lakes Area Convention & Visitors Bureau, there may be as many as 300 top bass anglers casting for the awards which can go up to $125,000 in the Pro Division and $25,000 cash in the Co-angler Division.

Tomorrow, March 1st, is also the kick-off for the opening of Rainbow Trout Season at the near-by Roaring River State Park Hatchery.  It is taken so seriously around Cassville, MO, that it is a school holiday!  Anticipation is always high and participants will start arriving Sunday evening to save their place along the river bank when the horn is sounded Monday morning.
