AFTCO is excited to announce the addition of Ryan Butler to their AFCTO Freshwater Pro Team. Butler, a 36-year old resident of Blue Eye, MO earned a berth to the 2018 Bassmaster Classic via a win at the 2017 Totota Bonus Bucks Bassmaster Team Championship, and is elated to join the team.
"I couldn't be more excited to partner with a company like AFTCO that shares my common goals and values. From the efforts they put towards conservation, to the long family history of the business, they embody everything I look for in a company," Butler said.
Butler will also be partnering with the Catch a Dream foundation, a nonprofit organization aimed towards providing outdoor adventures of a lifetime to kids with life-threatening illness. These trips are outdoors-based and center around bass fishing and hunting.
Ryan has a goal of raising $100,000, which will supply 20 trips for the children and their family. You can donate to Catch a Dream and Ryan Butler’s cause at www.catchadream.org/ryanbutler
Butler will join AFTCO Freshwater Pro Team anglers Jason Christie, Dustin Connell, Todd Faircloth, Shin Fukae, Anthony Gagliardi, Russ Lane, Jared Lintner, Scott Martin, and Michael Neal.
