The redesigned Berkley experience trailer kicks off its 9th year of touring the country this week with a stop at Watson Marine in Bristol, Tenn. It'll arrive Thursday and stay through Saturday (Feb. 8).
Inside the trailer, kids and adults can experience the rich history of Berkley. A new feature this year is a look inside the Berkley labs, where many of the innovative products in use today were first researched and studied.
There is also a timeline of key products, an updated fish biology section and all new educational videos on Berkley products. The walk-through will also display how the products were developed from the ground up.
Four Berkley professionals will be on hand to provide in-depth knowledge of products, knot-tying and line and bait selection.
“We are extremely excited about the upgrades to the Trailer and the experiences that anglers of all skill levels will have this year,” said Berkley marketing director Andrew Marks. "Our Experience Trailer team is ready to answer your questions and help anglers of all ages and skill levels learn about fishing, our passion and our company’s heritage."
The trailer will be at four Bassmaster Elite Series events this year. Complete information about the trailer and its travels and be found on by clicking here.
