ATC TRUCK COVERS SPONSORS FLW ANGLER ANDREW UPSHAW IN 2019
OTTAWA, Kan. – ATC Truck Covers, a subsidiary of LTA Manufacturing LLC, has sponsored Fishing League Worldwide (FLW) Angler Andrew Upshaw for the 2019 season. Upshaw is in his seventh year of professional fishing with the FLW and in his tenth year of full-time fishing.
After starting his fishing career with Bassmaster while in college, ultimately receiving a bachelor’s degree in sports marketing from Stephen F. Austin State University, Upshaw transitioned to FLW competition in 2012. Upshaw is a self-taught angler with three tournament wins, 20 Top 10 finishes, two cup appearances and 114 total FLW events fished as of 2018.
“Going into the season, I recognized that I needed a truck cap and cargo management system to really organize and protect my gear. A friend of mine recommended ATC truck caps, so I went to a dealer to check them out and see what would fit my truck. I ended up with an LTD cap and a LoadMaster HD with the StorMaster Combo drawers. I’ve never been the most organized person, but the drawers allow me to keep track of all of my smaller items while the slide-out LoadMaster makes it easier and safer to reach the equipment I store in the back of the bed,” Upshaw said.
ATC Truck Covers recognized Upshaw’s need for a truck cap and StorMaster Combo system with a LoadMaster HD and decided to sponsor Upshaw for the 2019 season. As part of his sponsorship, Upshaw will be promoting the brand on his social media channels, including Instagram and Facebook while representing the brand at competitions. Upshaw also sports ATC Truck Covers logos on his jersey and his boat while fishing.
“Andrew is a great angler, and he has a real need for our products. We were more than happy to sponsor him and outfit his truck. All of us at LTA Manufacturing, not just ATC Truck Covers, are excited to see how he performs this season,” said Vice President of Sales and Marketing Matt Blais.
Upshaw is already aiming to achieve some big goals in 2019, including making his third cup appearance and cashing out at every event, which he has done thus far. He is on the road for about seven months out of the year and is thankful to have a truck outfitted for his needs while traveling to and from fishing tournaments.
