Recommended Posts

New member here from South Carolina and was just wondering if I can get some in site in how me and my fishing partner could get some rod and reel sponsorships. Would like to match and get some better equipment but don't have the money to buy all these high priced rod and reels. Anyresponses will be appreciated

Is there a brand that the both of you like? if so, most have some sort of pro staff. You can try emailing them a fishing resume and see if they'll be willing to add you to their pro staff. Let them know who you are in a short bio and then what you can do for them. You might luck out and get one, depending on if you can offer them enough.

Ditto

That's the only way to do it that I know of also.

It CAN work, then again maybe not.

Just keep at it and build your resume over time, sometimes it can take years, just depends if you have enough of what they're looking for at that time and place.

Good Luck

A second option is to keep your eyes on the flea market section of this site. A lot of guys here take great care of their stuff and sell their old gear when they upgrade. You might be able to find what you want, albeit second hand, in good condition and for a fair price.

I have tried a couple different companies but they are all full. I used to bowfishing heavy and had 4 sponsors while doing the tournaments. I don't want free stuff I just would like some help on purchasing stuff. We are getting better tournament by tournament so hope by this time next year I will have a good resumè

You don't HAVE to have technique specific rods, and you don't HAVE to have high end rods. My most expensive combo might be MIGHT BE $200.... some are only $100. Work hard, learn hard, then fish hard. You get out of all things what you put in, trust me.

I was watching an FLW i think and a guy from MD Leclair was fishing the last day with a chance to win and several of his combos were berk lightning or shock or what ever they are called now. IMHO it was junk, but he was fishing the final day and boating bass to try and win. I think those rods are like 50 bucks.

I believe it was the BFL All American if I recall.  And shows that even if you have all the top dollar rod and reels on the deck of  a boat, if someone using less expensive equipment and knows what he's doing will still get the job done.  But I doubt he was using sub par fishing line since that's the most important connection between the fish and you.

Every rod I own cost me less than $100. I'm a kid and work my but off for my money doing a physical job so I make sure I get the value for my dollar. Shop around and buy used.

What year? I am looking for it now.

I thought it was this year on the potomac. Could be wrong. I think his name was Brian Leclair? I had never seen him before. He lives about 35 min away from me on MDs eastern shore. I am assuming he fished the Delaware federation prior to his pro career. My father and I fish all rivers on that side,  and are doing so again this upcoming season. We will fish the 5 DE open touneys as well. Cant wait

Was just looking at the TBF national championship and remembered the name "LaClair" from this thread. I think that must've been the tournament you saw. Finished 3rd. Looked at his bio and he also finished 14th at the All American.
