With Luke Dunkin, what you see is what you get. And you get to see a lot. The three-year FLW pro is all about authenticity – the kind of authenticity that only comes from pulling back the curtain to reveal everything that happens in the life of a Tour angler.

Your starting baits might be a little different, but Hallman’s approach to new water is worth considering. READ MORE »
