Tooley & Orr win RBT 2nd Qualifier on Lake St.Francis
Pair punch their ticket to RBT Tournament of Champions

Mother Nature rolled into Cornwall Ontario for the second qualifier of the Renegade Bass 
Tour event at Marina 200. Thunderstorms delayed blast off by an hour and when competitors 
did take off, many found the weather had affected their fish and left them scrambling.

For the team of Matt Tooley and Blake Orr, the road to their second ever RBT qualifier win, 
the name of the game was SLOW. “We found a lot of areas holding fish and didn't sting any 
in pre fish”, according to Tooley. “We slowed right down making a lot of casts in areas. 
Senkos did the trick”.

The winning weight of 21.15 pounds gave the pair their first win of 2017, a $5000 cheque 
and a spot in the RBT Tournament of Champions. “To win a qualifier at this level against 
some of the best fishermen in the country is simply amazing” says Tooley.

The third qualifier of the 2017 RBT season is Saturday July 22 on the Ottawa River out of 
Rockland, Ontario. The entire season is being filmed for broadcast on WFN.
