Daiwa to Launch Tatula Reel Sweepstakes through Fishhound.com


Fishhound announced today that it is teaming up with leading tackle manufacturer Daiwa Corporation to conduct an online contest in which one lucky angler will win a new Daiwa Tatula baitcasting reel.  The contest will run until June 15 and anyone with a Facebook page can enter by visiting the contest page, Daiwa’s Facebook page, or the Fishhound.com website.

“This contest is a great way to familiarize Fishhound’s audience of nearly one million die-hard anglers with the features and qualities that make Daiwa’s Tatula one of the most sought-after reels on the market,” said Rick Patri, Fishhound’s Vice President, Operations.  “It allows us to help Daiwa increase consumer awareness and market to a new audience, while also giving our users a chance to win a valuable prize they can put to good use out on the water.”

Curt Arakawa, Daiwa’s marketing director, is excited about the contest and partnering with Fishhound. “We have run similar campaigns with Fishhound in the past, and the results were tremendous.  That’s why we continue to work with them,” explained Arakawa. “The size of their audience and Fishhound’s expertise in the social media spectrum are unparalleled.”

This will be the second time Fishhound has hosted a giveaway featuring a Tatula Baitcaster as the prize.  The overwhelming success of the first contest reflected both Fishhound’s popularity and high demand for Daiwa’s Tatula reel.  Since making its debut at ICAST in 2013, the Tatula has been winning over avid anglers with its unsurpassed performance and reliability. A host of advanced features, including an innovative hybrid T-Wing Casting System for superior castability, an Air Rotation System for optimum smoothness, and a longer, stronger drive gear for increased fish-fighting power, puts the Tatula in a class by itself.
