FLW TOUR PRO
When talking about the best of the best in the world of bass fishing, it's hard–almost impossible—to not hear the name "Scott Suggs". A full time professional angler since 2004, Suggs and currently competes on the Fishing League Worldwide Tour circuit and in Major League Selects. With an outstanding career as a professional anger, he is most well-known for making bass fishing history by becoming the sport's first instant millionaire by winning the 2007 Forrest Wood Cup on Lake Ouachita.
Suggs partnered up with Popticals earlier this year and has been fishing his way through the 2016 FLW Tour and MLF with Popticals at the ready. From the first time he saw the unique portability and experienced the Ny-DEF nylon lenses manufactured by Carl Zeiss Vision, Popticals were instantly a must-have piece of fishing gear. "We've second guessed ourselves so many times in the past," Suggs said during the 2016 ICAST Fishing Show. "But with Popticals there" no guessing. Whatever you see is what you're looking at. The way I look at it, at the end of the day I've covered twice as much water."
Fishing in style from his Popticals-wrapped Ranger Z520C, Suggs had a great season landing a 3rd place win at Pickwick Lake and qualifying for to the 2016 Forrest Wood Cup. The compact design allows Suggs to safely and conveniently keep his favorite pair of Popticals with him while he competes on the FLW and MLF circuits all season long.
