Congratulations 2019/20 Championship Qualifiers we are excited to finally close out our season and recognize your success and award over $12,000 in scholarships and prizes.

This season we have expanded the Scholarship award to (1st Place – $4,000 • 2nd Place – $3,000 • 3rd Place – $2,500 • 4th Place – $1,500 • 5th Place – $1,000)

To confirm you have qualified check here

With so many changes and unknowns this year we are Blessed to be able to hold the Championship tournament on Lake Buchanan. There will be some changes and processes that we must adhere to in order to provide a safe event and be within guidelines of Local and State ordinances. This also will ensure the safety of our students, captains, and FAN Staff in addition to protecting all of our families.

One of the biggest changes is in our morning check-in and launch procedure. Trailering will be allowed and highly suggested (We probably need to explain what this means) ex: This means you are free to launch at the ramp of your choice. There are several boat ramps available to avoid larger groups and lines at any one ramp. There will not be a physical check-in location that morning.

You may launch from your chosen ramp as early as 5AM, however you may not start fishing until FIRST CAST at 7AM We will have a prayer and National Anthem on Facebook Live prior to 7am.

Off Limits will begin September 6th 11.59PM until tournament day 5am all other FAN rules will apply.

Last cast will be 2PM and you will have 1 hour to get to the weigh in location.

Please be mindful of the time required to get boats on trailers and get to the weigh in location.

Weigh In Location will be at the Cross and Spurs Cowboy Church

100 Lillian Dean

Buchanan Dam, TX 78609

Google Maps

Scales will be open at noon and will close at 4PM

This will be a drive through weigh in and there will not be flights. Each team will remain with their boat as they approach the stage and a FAN Staffer will ask you to remove your fish from the live well (we will have a photo opportunity) then hand your bag to the FAN attendant for bump and weight. You will then be free to leave however we will ask the top 5 teams as we progress to stay. (two teams will be Polygraphed) We are being asked for all teams to remain in their vehicle during the weigh process and not congregate in front of the stage.

After the scales close, we will announce the top 5 teams and award Scholarship letters and prizes. If you choose to leave, we will make arrangements for you to receive your awards.

Captains drawing will be held, and we will notify the winners and make arrangements to receive your prizes

EVERYONE MUST CHECK IN AT THE END OF THE TOURNAMENT – If you choose not to come to weigh please text us you are off the water. NO EXCEPTIONS

Everyone to register online by September 5th.

YOU MUST HAVE AN ADULT CAPTAIN AND TWO QUALIFIED STUDENTS OR YOU WILL BE DISQUALIFIED.

All FAN Anglers must be registered to the FAN GroupMe App and check-in with text messaging when prompted by FAN on the morning of the tournament

Outdoor Technologies is proud to partner up with the Faith Angler Network

Outdoor Technologies, LLC based out of Batesville Indiana could not be happier about bringing their 2 brands, OT Wear custom jerseys and Reeler’s Shield natural sunscreen to the teams competing in Faith Angler Network tournaments. Outdoor Technologies was formed in July of 2017 and has been focused on bringing their products to high school and college fishing teams since day 1. We feel that F.A.N. is a tournament trail that represents the best that this sport has to offer and we are excited to be a part of F.A.N.

OT Wear custom jerseys have quickly become the jersey company that tour pros and especially high school and college fishing teams turn to when standing out from their competition is key. Tour pros such as Scott Martin, Jimmy Houston, Greg DiPalma, Bailey Boutries, Jacob Wall and other have worked with OT right out of the gate because of our commitment to communicate with our anglers and teams so that we can design jerseys that not only represent their individuality, but that also provide maximum exposure for each of their corporate sponsors. At OT we work hand in hand with every single customer to create a completely custom design that is NEVER replicated on another customer. OT also understands how important sponsors are and we know that sponsors are a big part of keeping anglers on the water. That is why we are surgical when it comes to placing logos. We know that the happier your sponsors are the more likely they are to keep supporting your team. This is why we ask our teams to provide pictures to us from events they compete in. We are the only jersey company that uses its social media platforms to help our customers, and the sponsors who support them, get as much exposure as possible. OT offers a full line of crew collar or ¼ zip jerseys with templates and sizes specific for men, women, and youth anglers. We also offer sun hoodies and fleece-lined hoodies that can match any design we come up with for your jerseys. We have discounted pricing for larger orders, combo pricing for jersey and hoodie orders, and we are happy to offer all FAN teams an additional 5% discount on their orders. Every OT customer receives true custom design, precision logo placement and customer service that is unmatched. Call us today and get to know the OT difference. Check us out on the www.ot-wear.com website. Keith Pittman a founder of OT and the head of sales is always ready to discuss options for you team ad can be reached directly at 812-363-6420 or by email keith@ot-wear.com.

Reeler’s Shield is our sunscreen that was specifically developed with tournament anglers in mind. We knew that our sunscreen had to be a product that tournament anglers knew would keep them protected without getting all over their gear and had no scent or smell keeping the fish from biting. It took some time but we succeeded. Reeler’s Shield is all natural, eco/reef friendly, and it goes on dry without any scent or smell. We also made the stick easy to apply and it fits perfectly into your pocket, tackle box or life jacket pocket. It provides long lasting broad-spectrum protection that can be applied before you ever hit the ramp. Don’t worry if you drop your stick in the water because we made our stick floats. Far too many anglers over the age of 40 have to deal with skin cancer because they were not using proper sun protection when they were young. This is why Reeler’s Shield offers sponsorship to teams that commit to proper sun protection every time they hit the water. We also offer a 5% discount on your jersey order and free product for your team if you add the Reeler’s Shield logo to jerseys ordered through OT Wear. We have created a special promotional code (Faith) that can be used at checkout to receive free shipping on all of our already discounted bundle packs on the www.reelers-shield.com website. Skin cancer is the most common form of cancer, but it is also the most preventable and we are hoping that through our partnership with the Faith Angler Network will help keep the next generation of pro anglers from ever having to deal with skin cancer. So get out, rip some lips and get your Shield up today.

High school fishing continues to be a growing industry and Outdoor Technologies is looking forward to being a part of the Faith Angler Network tournament trail for years to come. If you have any questions please contact us at info@ot-wear.com or info@reelers-shield.com or call Keith Pittman today at 812-363-6420.
