BRENT EHRLER had a big month of July.

As noted, the touch-and-go situation with Brent Ehrler, the impending birth of his first child, his shot at the FLW Tour Angler of the Year title and a new business deal all shook out in July.

Most recently, Kelly Ehrler gave birth to the couple’s first, a son (reportedly named Ollie) on Saturday evening, but that event was also part of the mix as Brent competed in the final qualifying event in FLW, namely the contest at Pickwick Lake in Tennessee.

Although a few points behind leader David Dudley, Brent announced in advance that if he got the call that the birth was eminent, he would leave for home, rather than stay and compete.

As it turned out, he was able to fish the three qualifying days of the contest and even make the final 10 cut, but because he had not generated enough points to overtake Dudley, it made it easy for him to return home for the birth.

Needless to say, a healthy arrival and a second place in the Tour standings was not a bad weekend.

Yet going into the contest, he also added to his portfolio. Through FLW, Brent landed a Plano sponsorship, which signage we should be seeing come time for the Forrest Wood Cup and beyond. As it turned out, Plano seems to be on a roll, grabbing Ehrler and then earning “Best of Show” recognition at ICAST for the new Hydro-Flo tackle system.

Obviously, Brent is a winner.
