Middletown man wins FLW Tour event

February 19, 2007

AUSTIN, Texas - Aaron Hastings caught 10 bass weighing 19 pounds, 9 ounces in the final round to win $125,000 in the $1 million Wal-Mart FLW Tour event on Lake Travis, the opening event of the season.

"The money is great, but to me it's all about the competition and catching fish. It really doesn't get any better than this," Hastings said.

Hastings, of Middletown, Md., beat second-place finisher Bryan Thrift by more than two pounds and leads all pros in the chase for the $2 million Forrest Wood Cup in Hot Springs, Ark., where the winner will take home as much as $1 million.

It was the first FLW Tour win for Hastings, who graduated from Boonsboro High School. He is in his second season on the tour.
