The complete 2011 FLW American Fishing Series rules, including registration dates and a relaxed logo policy, were released Tuesday. An article detailing the 2011 AFS schedule and payouts was posted last week.
The top 100 pros and 100 co-anglers from the 2010 FLW Series Western Division, top 50 pros and 50 co-anglers from each division of the 2010 AFS, and the top 40 boaters and 40 co-anglers from each division of the 2010 BFL must pay deposits for all four tournaments in a division beginning today through Nov. 15 in order to secure their priority entry position.
Ranger boat owners may register beginning Nov. 16. TBF members may register beginning Nov. 17. All other entries will be accepted beginning Nov. 18.
Top entry priority goes to pros and co-anglers who enter all four AFS tournaments in a division by Dec. 16 for the Central, Southeast, Texas and Western divisions and Jan. 27, 2011, for the Northern Division. All other entry priority will be assigned by the date and time of entry.
Tournament fees are $1,000 per event ($250 deposit) for the Pro Division and $400 per event ($100 deposit) for the Co-angler Division.
Registration can be completed online or by contacting FLW Outdoors at (270) 252-1000. Phones open at 8 a.m. Central time, Monday through Friday.
Revised logo policy
Anglers may wear their own jersey every day of competition in AFS qualifying tournaments. FLW Outdoors reserves the right, in its sole discretion, to prohibit any angler’s jersey that it finds to be offensive. Additional logo restrictions apply for the televised AFS Championship and will be provided to qualifying anglers. All decisions are in FLW Outdoors’ sole discretion.
Specific registration rules as well as all other rules regarding the 2011 FLW American Fishing Series are available online. An article detailing the 2011 AFS schedule and payouts is posted at FLWOutdoors.com.
