Synopsis by Hal Erickson
The prestigious annual FLW bass-fishing tournament was the sole raison d'etre for this weekly, hour-long sports series, telecast live on Saturday afternoons. Each episode featured one of the many tournament sites, in such far-flung locales as Florida's Lake Okeechobee, Alabama's Lake Wheeler, and Arkansas' Lake Ouachita. Since these localized contests had their own individual corporate sponsors, the series often took on the dimensions of a weekly infomercial -- albeit an entertaining one. FLW Outdoors was aired over the PAX network beginning January 19, 2002.
