Covercraft Announces Title Sponsorship of Bradley Roy

Covercraft has announced its continuation as the title sponsor of Major League Fishing professional angler Bradley Roy of Lancaster, Kentucky. In addition to being a highly skilled angler, Bradley is dedicated to giving back to the community through charitable events and programs. One part of Roy’s commitment to his community is the annual Bradley Roy High School Open fishing tournament. Beginning in 2019, the Bradley Roy Open added Covercraft as the title sponsor. Covercraft branding will again be the focus of Roy’s truck, boat, and jersey for 2021, but the sponsorship goes beyond that.  With the support of Covercraft, Roy will again host a sweepstakes for one angler to fish with him on Lake Cumberland. Covercraft will outfit the lucky winner’s vehicle with their products from bumper to bumper.
