AFTCO Boot Camp deadline nears

AFTCO Boot Camp deadline nears

To celebrate its entry into the bass apparel market after 60 years on the saltwater scent, AFTCO is seeking a Bassmaster Opens Series angler to document the trials and tribulations of the competitive grind of high-level tournament fishing. Through AFTCO’s Bass Boot Camp YouTube Series, the selected angler will provide an in-depth and behind-the-scenes glimpse into what it takes to chase your dreams of becoming a professional bass angler. The application deadline is Friday (Jan. 26).

The selected angler will be introduced to all angles of competitive bass fishing. They will attend the 2018 Sunline, Big Bite Baits, SPRO, Gamakatsu, Denali Rods, and AFTCO Writer’s Conference, where they will work alongside top bass anglers and bass fishing media. This will provide the angler the chance to learn more about the business of pro fishing. They will also work alongside AFTCO staff helping to carry out their Conservation-First approach to the outdoors.

AFTCO has committed to cover entry fees and associated travel expenses after the selected angler. In addition, the winning entry will receive an AFTCO apparel sponsorship, including fishing shirts, rain gear and more. Applicants must intend to fish the Opens in their own boat and be able to film, edit, and create their own videos for the YouTube series. Video and basic editing skills are a requirement.
