Temple Fork Outfitters Renews Ties with The Association of Collegiate Anglers and the Cabela’s Collegiate Bass Fishing Championship Series


The Association of Collegiate Anglers has announced that Temple Fork Outfitters, makers of affordable high-performance fishing rods, has renewed its ties and sponsorship of the 2014 Cabela’s Collegiate Bass Fishing Association and the Association of Collegiate Anglers.

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.

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 excited to be working with the Cabela’s Collegiate Bass Fishing Series again and look forward to following these anglers’ future.”

Collegiate Anglers this year will have a unique opportunity to work with Temple Fork to purchase their custom rods as part of a discount purchase program created jointly between the Association of Collegiate Anglers and TFO.  For more information on that program collegiate anglers are urged to contact [email protected] or go online at www.CollegiateBassChampionship.com and visit the discount and incentives page.

As part of their support to the ACA events this year TFO will host a meal during weigh in at one of the major televised events where college anglers will have a chance to visit with staff from TFO personally. 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 .

Official rules and registration dates for the 2014 Cabela’s Collegiate Bass Fishing Series will be announced in coming weeks at www.CollegiateBassChampionship.com.
