Wed, 02/08/2012

COLUMBIA, S.C. – Abu Garcia® is one of the biggest names when it comes to catching more fish. The 2012 Abu Garcia pro team recently added some of the best rookies on this year’s 2012 Elite Series Tour. BASS pros Fletcher Shyrock and Jamie Horton look forward to fishing with Abu Garcia in the upcoming 2012 Bassmaster Elite Series trail.

“Abu Garcia has been a power house when it comes to performance bass fishing equipment,” said Shyrock. “It doesn’t matter if you are fishing the Revo STX or the newest Revo MGX, each of these reels are made to be put through the ultimate test – professional bass fishing.”

Each of these anglers have dedicated their lives to the sport of bass fishing. Shyrock and Horton came through the ranks of the BASS Opens to claim their spot on the Elite Series.

“Fletcher and Jamie are terrific anglers,” said Andrew Wheeler, Abu Garcia Product Manager. “Abu Garcia is proud to have them as part of our growing team. The products that we have not only benefit our pros, but they also are great for the weekend anglers.”
