Meet Our Team

Regional Directors

Gary Malkin

            My name is Gary Malkin.  I am 46 years old, married to my wife Chrisha.  I currently am self-employed as a Gunsmith and finish Woodworker for the past 4 years.  I am a retired Sergeant First Class from the U.S. Military (Army) with 23 years of active duty service as of February 2014.  I live in Fayetteville NC pursuing my fishing career and lifelong dream. 


            I have learned in the military that you can’t take anything lightly. By this I mean, your drive in finishing the mission and finishing it on top.  Whether the mission is big or small long or short, you finish it and finish it on top.  I have taken this philosophy to what I feel is a whole new extreme in fishing.  My goal in life is to win the BassMasters Classic and the FLW tour Championship, along with angler of the year in both.  I believe I have the drive, willingness, dedication and complete commitment to be number ONE.  With the right amount of time on the water and right equipment, I will achieve my goal. 


            My military background and experience has afforded me the opportunity to talk to a diverse military and civilian population about different products that I uses while I am fish.  For example, FishStyx Rods, TRC Covers, Jewel Bait and Amphibia Sunglass are my sponsors.  People see me using these products and it forms an impression with them.  I can reach a large amount of untapped resources by endorsing the products I trust in to people I imprint while fishing


            I have been associated with both professional and amateur competitions which are listed in my attached resume. My equipment includes a 2004 TR196 powered by a 200 Mercury engine and is transported by a 2017 Toyota Tundra.  


            In closing, I feel that I have a lot to learn as well as a lot to offer.  I like talking to people in both small and large crowds.  I feel that once I put my mind to something that I have the training, experience, willingness, dedication and drive to get anything accomplished.  I will use this to achieve my goal in life and I would encourage you to come along for want will be an exciting ride. 




Eddie Endicott

I was born and raised in St. Pete Florida. I grew up fishing in the Gulf and lakes in Florida. But I made a move to Kentucky where I have lived most of my life fishing creeks, ponds, rivers, and lakes. I also found a love for hunting and love it all. 
  After high school I went on to receive a two year degree in Industrial Maintenance from WKU Technical College in Bowling Green. I have worked in the trades for more than 30 years and I am currently a Engineering Technician for a automotive factory. 
  I have been married to my beautiful wife for almost 23 years and have three wonderful daughters. 
  I have coached a high school bowling team for seven years. And my oldest daughter is now bowling at the collegiate level. 
  I have been with TRC Covers from pretty much the start. I started out as a Sales Rep. and on to the Pro Staff. I was promoted to the East Region Manager and now serve as the Regional Director. 
  Over the years I have competed in several Bass tournaments local and regional. I have had great success in them and look forward to advancing on to the next level. 
Regional Managers
Austin Klotz
My name is Austin Klotz and I have been apart of TRCovers for five years. I am an avid angler that enjoys competing in local, collegiate and semi-professional circuits. I have competed in several FLW regional tournaments and two national level tournaments. I enjoy fishing as much as I possibly can and have been blessed to live only 25 minutes away from St. Clair which makes it difficult to fish anywhere else. I am pursuing my captain’s training to become a guide on St. Clair. My passion is allowing others to enjoy fishing like I do. There is nothing like watching a less experienced angler bring in a fish of a lifetime. Once I earn the captain’s license I would like to eventually become a full-time guide which will allow me to create many lifelong memories for myself and others.
