Outdoor Heritage Tournament Intro Video & schedule for 2013


Outdoor Heritage, Inc. Announces Western Pro-Am and Team tournaments schedule for 2013

The formation of a new western-based professional tournament trail and media company is quickly gaining momentum and has already received significant sponsorship support. The investment group Outdoor Heritage, Inc., comprised of western angling notables and independent businessmen Gary and Richard Dobyns, Tony Franceschi, Roderick Lee, Jim Markham, and Craig Gottwals, is leading the organization of the Pro-Am and team tournament circuits and recently secured permits for several California and Arizona lakes.

Franceschi expects that the new tournaments will be popular among anglers aspiring to become pros and compete against the western’s best.

“We’ve been offered a wide variety of tournaments in the past, but never one that provided anglers the opportunity to chase the dream of making a living fishing out West,” states Franceschi. “Our plan is to build this organization so that in the future, whether you are just starting out or have been competing for years, there will be the opportunity to make your dreams a reality!”

Angling legend Gary Dobyns echoes Franceschi’s sentiments.

Says Dobyns, “Flat out, this circuit will attract the best of the best. This is just the beginning; our vision is to build upon this and deliver an elite-level circuit for the West.”

Outdoor Heritage will offer media coverage for all of its circuits, including television coverage for its Pro-Ams. Tournament details, including sponsorship and payout, will be formally announced at a later date.
