Jack Link’s Major League Fishing announced today that Strike King Lure Company has become a league sponsor for the 2013 season.
“We welcome Strike King to Major League Fishing. This is a top-notch company that has been great for the fishing industry for more than 40 years. We are pleased to have them as a partner,” said Major League Fishing General Manager Jim Wilburn. “We believe Strike King is a natural fit for Major League Fishing because several of our outstanding anglers are sponsored by them."
Major League Fishing anglers Denny Brauer, Mark Davis, Shaw Grigsby, Greg Hackney and Kevin VanDam are sponsored individually by Strike King.
“Major League Fishing is adding a new dimension to the professional fishing industry, and Strike King is pleased to be a partner with the league and the outstanding group of anglers that are participating," said Strike King President John Barns. "The format is truly exciting, and I think the more sports fans around the country see of Major League Fishing, the more they’re going to appreciate it."
The next MLF event – The General Tire Summit Cup filmed at Chautauqua Lake in Western New York – will begin airing on Outdoor Channel at 9 p.m. EST on Thursday, Jan. 3, 2013.
