School is back in session in the metro Atlanta area this week. September is still 4 weeks away. In all actuality, we’ve still got one more month of summer,but this week at Howard Brothers feels like we’re about to kick off a busy fall.

This weekend, the Forrest Wood Cup comes to Atlanta. Not familiar with it?

FLW is the premier tournament fishing organization that provides unparalleled fishing resources and entertainment to our anglers, sponsors, fans and host communities.

This is a huge event for our region. Gainesville and Lake Lanier welcome some of the best bass fishers in the world. The 2012 Forrest Wood Cup will feature the top 46 pros and 46 co-anglers FLW has to offer. Competitors include the top 35 pros and 35 co-anglers from the 2012 FLW Tour Majors, the top five pros and five co-anglers from the 2011 FLW Tour Opens, the 2011 EverStart Series pro and co-angler champions, the 2012 BFL All-American boater and co-angler champions, the 2012 FLW College Fishing national champions, the 2011 Forrest Wood Cup pro and co-angler champions, the 2011 FLW Tour Angler of the Year and Co-angler of the Year, and the 2012 TBF boater and co-angler national champions.

There will be a large expo that accompanies the weigh ins at the Gwinnett Civic center each day. Being in our backyard, this is an ideal place for us to hang out with the community that will be there.

Howard Brothers actually has a large presence at the expo this year. Not only will we be at the Exmark Booth and the Honda Outdoor Booth, we’ll have a large booth on our own in the expo hall and will be showing off the Big Green Egg and Traeger Grills. We’ll have knives from brands like Kershaw, Buck, Case and SOG. We’ll be having incredible deals on DMT diamond sharpening accessories.

The expo hall will be open Friday, Saturday and Sunday from 10:00am to 5:00pm each day. (August 9-11)
