Here is a nice endorsement from Elite Series Pro Edwin Evers did for Bill McElroy in 2014.

Bill’s talent is unmatched. You can get his artwork on a rod handle at Bass Pro Shops NEXT weekend. Just purchase a cork handled rod and bring it by his table. Best part…it’s FREE!

Remember Feb 13 & 14 Bass Pro Auburn Hills and Feb 19, 20 and 21 in Bolingbrook, IL.

See ya there!

A quick update from the Bass Pro Shops Spring Classic whirlwind weekend tour. We're on our way to the Shreveport BPS for tomorrow's appearance, looking forward to seeing everyone there!
