Sponsorship includes Redfish Tour, Kayak Tour and all-new Pro-Am events
The Inshore Fishing Association (IFA) welcomes Amphibia Sports, LLC, as an official sponsor for the 2013 tournament season. The partnership includes the IFA Redfish Tour presented by Cabela’s, the IFA Kayak Fishing Tour presented by Hobie Fishing as well as the new Lucas Oil IFA Pro-Am Redfish Challenge Series presented by Cabela’s.
“We are thrilled to partner with Amphibia Sports,” said IFA Marketing Director Bart Schad. “Many of our anglers sight-fish for their limits, so quality optics are an integral part of their setup. Making such a durable product that floats on water is sure to be a hit on the tournament circuit.”
A leading manufacturer of watersports-focused eyewear, Amphibia Sports, LLC, is committed to providing high-performance eyeglasses for active lifestyles. Based in Carrolton, Texas, the company offers a wide variety of eyewear with a comfortable fit at an affordable price. With the ability to float, the eyewear is guaranteed to last.
“Our goal is to provide outdoor enthusiasts with top quality eyewear that performs at a high level every day,” said Bill Eisenmann, president of Amphibia Sports. “IFA anglers work hard and play hard. They embody the spirit of our company. We are happy to join a great tournament circuit like the IFA.”
As part of the sponsorship, Amphibia Sports will award a $500 contingency prize to the winner of the IFA Redfish and Kayak Tour Championship events. Also, the winning pro- and co-angler of the Lucas Oil IFA Pro-Am Redfish Challenge at Punta Gorda, Fla., will receive a $500 and $250 contingency prize, respectively. To qualify, anglers must have purchased Amphibia Sports eyewear prior to the tournament and worn them throughout the event and on stage. Anglers must also mention Amphibia while on stage to qualify.
Drawing inshore anglers from Texas to the Carolinas and beyond, the IFA Redfish Tour is the largest and oldest redfish tour in the nation. Offering anglers the opportunity to compete in low-entry fee events, redfish anglers can fish close to home, minimize expenses and compete for lucrative winnings and contingency prizes. The Lucas Oil IFA Pro-Am Redfish Challenge series is being billed as the ultimate redfish showdown, featuring the sport’s best anglers in a high stakes, made-for-TV competition.
The IFA Kayak Fishing Tour presented by Hobie Fishing is the fastest-growing kayak fishing tournament trail in the county. Kayak anglers competing in the catch-photograph-release tournaments can take advantage of the numerous money and product prizes awarded to competitors.
