FLW Tour pro Alex Davis hauled in the $500 LEER “Cover Cash” award for his third place finish at the FLW Tours’ opening event on Lake Guntersville. Davis is no stranger to LEER products. The very first truck he owned in his life was a used model he purchased as a 16 year old, and Davis fondly remembers it having a LEER Cap on it.
“I’ve always associated LEER with quality products,” Davis said. “That first cap looked good and kept my gear safe and dry in my truck bed. I loved it. So, of course, when the “Cover Cash” program came out, my truck cap choice was a no-brainer.”
That no-brainer has turned out to be quite lucrative for Davis since “Cover Cash” went into effect three years ago. Davis has filled his pockets with LEER Cover Cash a myriad of times throughout the years while competing in American Bass Angler tournaments, FLW TH Marine League events (BFLs), FLW Costa Series derbies, and recently on the FLW Tour.
“In all honesty I’ve nearly paid for my last two LEER caps with money I made from the “Cover Cash” program,” Davis said. “It seems a lot of BFL anglers don’t have truck caps or tonneau covers, so I was able to cash in on those tournaments regularly. Shoot, I know of tournaments where I won the “Cover Cash” bonus with a 20th or 30th place finish.”
As Davis said -- by no means do you need to win a tournament to be eligible to earn LEER “Cover Cash”. You just have to be the highest placing eligible participant in a sanctioned Cover Cash event. Even better, it’s available to both boaters and co-anglers.
When asked what he planned on spending his newly acquired $500 Cover Cash bonus on, Davis was quick to respond with an expense all anglers are familiar with.
“It’s going right in the gas tank,” Davis joked. “It may not sound too glamorous, but it’s a huge help. I’m leaving Lake Travis here in Texas and heading back east all the way to Florida’s Harris Chain. I’m tickled to death for the “Cover Cash”, it will help to fill up my truck and boat gas tanks along the way.”
