Harris Chain of Lakes selected to host 2020 FLW Tour event

RELEASE DATE: August 9, 2019

LEESBURG – Fishing League Worldwide (FLW), the world’s largest tournament-fishing organization, announced today that the Harris Chain of Lakes has been selected to host the second event of the 25th season of the FLW Tour, Feb. 20-23, 2020, in Leesburg. The 25th season of the FLW Tour will feature seven regular-season tournaments showcasing the best anglers in the world competing at top bass fisheries at peak times.
 
“Lake County is excited to welcome back the Fishing League Worldwide Tour,” said Lake County Commissioner Tim Sullivan. “The abundant Harris Chain of Lakes, in particular, has increasingly become a destination for major fishing tournaments such as this one, which will bring the world’s top anglers to our great county. We wish them a successful event and encourage them to take some time to enjoy all that Lake County has to offer, and discover why we are ‘Real Florida, Real Close.”
 
The FLW Tour has visited the Harris Chain of Lakes two times previously, with 2020 marking the third visit in the Tour’s 25-year history.
 
The full schedule for the 2020 FLW Tour season was announced live to anglers and media Thursday at the annual pre-FLW Cup banquet in Hot Springs, Arkansas.
 
“We are excited for the FLW Tour to return to the Harris Chain of Lakes in 2020,” said Kathy Fennel, president of FLW operations. “We’ve had great success holding multiple FLW tournaments in Leesburg, and we are proud to bring the FLW Tour back to central Florida.”
 
The event will be hosted by Lake County. Further details will be announced later this year.
