Both anglers are known for their versatile fishing skills and are therefore expected to do well in fishing the cold waters of Grand
“Yes, winning the Bassmaster Classic is a big deal for an angler and his sponsors, but that’s not why we’ve tapped Marty and Jason for Team Lew’s,” said Lynn Reeves, Lew’s CEO. “First and foremost, both of these anglers are classy guys that present themselves well in whatever the circumstances on and off the water. They are simply a good fit for the Lew’s brand which has earned its reputation by being a workhorse name that you can always depend on.
“Marty and Jason are joining an elite group of like-minded individuals that make up our team and make us proud every day of the year, not just during the Classic,” Reeves added.
The Bassmaster Classic and Classic Outdoor Expo dates are Feb. 22-24. The expo is held in the Tulsa Convention Center; the daily weigh-ins are held nearby at the BOK Center. Admission is free to both activities.
The Lew’s brand got its start more than 60 years ago, but only recently has returned to a place of prominence in the fishing industry after getting high marks from fishermen and retailers for its entire new lineup of rods and reels. All Lew’s products, including the new-for-2013 BB1 series, feature the company’s ongoing promise to deliver “lighter, faster and stronger” rods and reels.
