Cody Meyer: FLW Year 2

Power Pole

MeyerBlogHappy New Year to all the bass anglers out there! I know I am excited about 2011 and my sophomore season on Tour, I hope you all have big plans for the new year as well.

For my second year on the FLW Tour I am much more comfortable about what lies ahead and I am exited about the schedule. Currently I am awaiting my boat arrival from Ranger but, I am still getting ready for the Everstart Series event out here on Lake Shasta. I’ll be using Keith Bryan’s boat of Powell Rod Company for the event, Keith is one of my great sponsors and I really appreciate his friendship and support.

This year will be the first season that I do not fish FLW’s tournament offering to the west. The FLW Everstart dates conflict with the tour dates so I will only be fishing the FLW Tour majors and the Shasta Everstart event next week. Other than those events I will pick up a couple local team tournaments and maybe a regional Pro Am if it fits my schedule.

One product that I am really excited about is my new Phenix Pro Series Cody Meyer Football Head Jig. Phenix got together with myself, Brent Ehrler, Brett Hite and Tim Klinger to help make a new line of jigs. One of my favorite baits is a football head jig so naturally I was happy to help build a better one. Currently the jig is available in 4 great colors currently and there will be many more colors in the near future. Check them out at a tackle store near you and if they don’t have them – tell them they need to carry them.

I am proud to have the same sponsors for 2011. They include Jackall, Powell Rods, Monster Fishing Tackle, Eye Surrender, Phenix Jigs, Ranger and Evinrude motors.

Again, happy new year to you all and I look forward to blogging often in 2011 and hopefully sharing a bit of my life on tour and maybe a few fishing tips as well.
