Fishing apparel brand Huk has been named presenting sponsor of this year’s Academy Sports + Outdoors Bassmaster Classic, scheduled for June 11th to 13th in Fort Worth, Texas.
“We are happy that B.A.S.S was able to reschedule the event and it could not have picked a better host city and fishing location,” said Pete Angle, CMO of Marolina Outdoor Inc., which includes Huk among its brands. “We look forward to continuing our partnered efforts like new angler recruitment and access to outdoor recreational opportunities.”
Fans will be able to see Huk’s new Waypoint, Tidepoint, Capers Volley and Kona collections, as well as favourites like the Next Level shorts, Icon X collection and Pursuit lines.
It is only the third time in more than 50 years that the Classic has visited Texas, one of the country’s best fishing states. It is also the first time a major B.A.S.S. tournament has been held on Lake Ray Roberts (pictured), a 29,350-acre water known for big bass. The Classic Outdoors Expo will be at the Will Rogers Memorial Centre, with the weigh-in at the nearby Dickies Arena.
