Columbus, Ga., July 2, 2018 — Realtree Fishing’s Mark Rose won the coveted FLW / Pennzoil Marine Pro Angler of the Year title this past weekend in nail-biter fashion.
Rose came into the Lake St. Clair tournament leading in points, but the Michigan waters are notorious for separating anglers by the smallest of margins at weigh-in. And such was the case. Rose could have sealed the deal on the season-long test on Thursday, but just one ounce short on weight left him four spots back from clenching the title. It wasn’t until Saturday, when previous Angler of the Year Scott Martin missed moving on to the Sunday finish by just one spot, that Rose held the trophy.
Realtree Fishing is honored to partner with Rose, whose experience, reputation and love for family and the outdoors are a great fit for the Realtree Fishing brand.
