Tournament angling in the mid-west with The Rod Glove Pro Staff, Glenn Walker

Growing up in the mid-west, Glenn spent a great deal of time outdoors and started fishing at the age of two with his family on the Mississippi River. 

The Rod Glove Pro Staff, Glenn Walker has created a career for his passion for the outdoors as a tournament angler, fishing the FLW TH-Marine Bass Series, and is an avid writer for many outdoor publications including Bass Angler Magazine, Badger Sportsman, Midwest Outdoors and WesternBass.com

In the off season, Glenn spent time on the ice not with fishing, but with hockey.  He played five seasons as a goalie in Division III hockey with the Blue Devils and even today he still finds time now to coach for Prior Lake High School.

His real passion was in fishing and in 2001, Glenn fished his first tournament and took first place.  Although Glenn continues to fish tournaments on the Mississippi River, he also competes in regional events in KY, TN and OK.  He indicated that his tournament season this year has been an interesting one and that he has had some exciting finishes.  Having felt like he put the final puzzle pieces together, yet still getting edged out.  Glenn was invited to the Classic Bass Champions Tour, a catch all-record-release style tournament and he earned big bass honors.

Glenn has been fishing the FLW T-H Marine Bass Fishing League events trying to qualify for the Regionals and has had some success so far mid-season.  With a couple of more events still in the schedule, we hope to see Glenn finish the season within the top rankings.

As the Vice President of Operations for Providence Marketing Group, Glenn gets to stay connected to the outdoor industry throughout the season.  When he is not out fishing, you will find him writing or working the industry.  If you miss him on the water, be sure to check out his articles that he writes along with instructional videos that he creates for ScoutLookWeather.com 
 

  • With my busy on and off the water schedule, it is critical that I'm able to quickly grab the rods I need and know they are protected in all the hustle and bustle, this is why I choose The Rod Glove!
