Denali Rods announced today that it's signed Hank Cherry, a North Carolinian who'll be a rookie on the Bassmaster Elite Series in 2013, to its national pro staff.
"A couple buddies had been using Denali’s rods and I actually drew one of Denali’s owners in an FLW Tour event a couple years ago, so I reached out to them again and it has really been great," he said. "They are an up-and-coming company and I am an up-and-coming angler, so we’ve got a lot of ways we can help each other out.”
Said Denali president Scott Estes: "We have been looking to get someone on the Elites for a while, so when Hank called we were immediately interested. After talking for a while, it became obvious that he has some of the same goals as we do both in the short and long term. We think Hank’s going to do big things on the Elites, so we’re looking forward to working together in the coming years.”
