FLW Angler endorses Buck products


Buck Knives is pleased to announce the sponsorship of FLW Pro Angler, Bill McDonald from Greenwood, Indiana.

McDonald has multiple tournament wins, including numerous Top 10 finishes. His career highlights include FLW Championship and Best Finish in 2013. He is sponsored by many top brands including, Strike King, Lucas Marine Products, ION Cameras, General Tire, Wired2fish, and Ranger boats.

Bill is an avid fisherman who understands the importance of quality fishing products. "I grew up in Indiana and nearly everything I did outdoors was with my Buck knife," said McDonald. "I never went anywhere without my Buck 110 Folding Hunter. I am honored that Buck chose me as their first sponsored FLW angler." McDonald joins Buck's Bass Pro Staffers, Bill Lowen and Brandon Palaniuk of the Bassmaster Elite Circuit.

Last year, McDonald competed in the FLW Tour, several Bassmaster Open events, as well as various regional tournaments. McDonald will be at the FLW Championship in Lake Murray August 14-17.

"We are excited to work with Bill," said Bob George, Director of Sales and Marketing of Buck Knives. "His experience in tournament fishing and his love for the outdoors are a great fit for Buck. He is a great addition to our current Pro Staff and I am confident he will be an outstanding ambassador for Buck Knives and our brand."
