The Association of Collegiate Anglers has announced that Temple Fork Outfitters, makers of affordable high-performance fishing rods, will join the 2013 BoatUS Collegiate Bass Fishing Championship Series as a sponsor.
Temple Fork Outfitters, a Dallas based company developed their rod-building skills in the fly-rod market in 1997, then brought their expertise into the freshwater market in 2008. Their first line, the Signature Series was designed by industry pioneer, Gary Loomis, with the goal of “Unparalleled performance at an unparalleled price.” The Signature Series are all fast action rods, but in varying lengths and powers, to match a variety of situations on the water. TFO followed up the successful Signature Series, with the Tactical Series, which is a lineup of technique-specific rods built to the same high standards, but in various actions, as well as lengths and powers. Both lines feature a unique Color ID System, which makes picking up the right tool for the job a snap.
According to Danny Blandford, Program Director for the Association of Collegiate Anglers, “We look forward to working with Temple Fork Outfitters in 2013. They’ll be introducing students to great products at prices within their budget, which is a win for our collegiate anglers. We’ll be doing a variety of promotions with TFO this year, so our Facebook fans and event participants are in for a treat.”
Collins Illich, of TFO, went on to add, “TFO’s core values of quality, affordability, and passion are perfectly represented by collegiate anglers. We are proud to be working with the BoatUS Collegiate Bass Fishing Championship Series and look forward to following these anglers’ future.”
Temple Fork rods are available in major retailers, and hundreds of independent stores throughout the country. Those interested should visit www.tforods.com, where they will find a Dealer Locator and complete product information.
