Rod-maker Halo Fishing announced today that it's signed reigning Forrest Wood Cup champion and two-tour pro Randall Tharp to a title sponsorship agreement through the 2014 season.
“In 2012 I won my first FLW Tour event on Lake Okeechobee with the first Halo rods ever made,” he said. “I was so impressed with their product, I wanted to become a part of the company and I’ve been with them ever since. They have a knack for building rods that compliment my favorite big-fish techniques of pitching, punching, frogging and swim-jigging.”
Alex Pappas, co-owner of Halo Fishing, says Tharp is a fishing company’s dream spokesperson.
“We are honored to have Randall running the Halo Fishing wrap this year,” Pappas said. “He has been an integral part of our Halo Team since before we began making rods.
:Randall is a great fisherman and a great person. He is a people’s pro, a genuine down-to-earth person. He listens to people and engages them in conversation. People can relate to him. His passion for this sport is immeasurable.”
