Outkast Tackle announced that it's added FLW Tour angler and former Bassmaster Classic qualifier Andrew Upshaw to its pro staff.
"We are proud to be working with Andrew and share his passion for jig-fishing," said said Outkast VP Connor Summers. "Andrew has a bright future in this sport and we are excited to partner with him to continue to provide anglers with the best jigs on the market."
Said Upshaw: "I've known the guys at Outkast Tackle for a while; they are great guys who make great products. They've already got one jig in their line I've had input on, and they are creating a jig for me as we speak. Hopefully this thing will be out by ICAST Ė it's a pretty wicked design."
In addition to using Outkast jigs, Upshaw will also be using SLIX Rod Covers to protect his Lew's rods from wear and tear throughout the tournament season.
