Adding to a great team of anglers, Vicious Vision Premium Polarized Eyewear has signed B.A.S.S. Elite pro Byron Velvick. Velvick has three B.A.S.S. wins under his belt including an impressive win in 2010 where he weighed nearly 100lbs over the 4-day tournament. In addition to fishing on the tour, Byron has worked as a commentator for BassCenter and as an on-the-water reporter and analyst for ESPN. He now hosts his own show, Guides’ Eyes, which airs on the Outdoor Channel on Friday and Saturday and is one of the 24 anglers that helped to launch Major League Fishing which airs on the Outdoor Channel as well.
Velvick says, “I was very fortunate to meet the guys at Vicious Vision. What they have brought to market is the best pair of glasses I have ever worn. Not only do they allow me to see more in the water, but they deliver the best available protection from the sun and they feel great too. I had an opportunity to visit their lab in Springfield and it was very cool to see the personalized work that goes into every pair of glasses. There’s more to it than I could have ever imagined and I have a new appreciation for this phenomenal eyewear!”
Vision Vision not only sponsors Byron on tour, but also is the major sponsor of his Outdoor Channel Show, Guides’ Eyes. Guides’ Eyes is focused on the guides that work every day to deliver a great outdoors experience to their clients. Byron travels all over America looking for guides who work endless hours to ensure their clients have success while on the water. The show airs on Fridays at 1:30 and 6:30 p.m. and on Saturdays at 11:00 a.m. (all Eastern).
Dr. Doug Jordan, Vicious Vision owner, added, “When we looked at what Byron brought to the table, it just made sense to get him on the Vicious Vision team. He’s not only a known sight fisherman on the tour, but he also has the Outdoor Channel exposure he brings with Guides’ Eyes and Major League Fishing. Add to that the exposure he still receives from his appearance as ABC’s, the Bachelor, and he fills a significant role in driving impressions for our brand. We are very glad that he agreed to come on board with us.”
