Wilderness Systems more than doubled its fishing Pro Staff from 15 to 33 anglers and added their first international angler for 2013.


Returning to the team this year are world-class kayak anglers Captain Jason Stock, Captain Dean Thomas, and Pro Staff director, Chad Hoover. Known for their passion and in-depth knowledge of kayak angling, the pro staff are key contributors to boat design and will continue to represent the brand in multiple tournaments, assist in retail training, and contribute to marketing efforts to help further Wilderness Systems investment in this growing and thriving sport.


Our Pro Staff members are not only fierce competitors, theyre dedicated anglers and tremendous goodwill ambassadors for the sport, said Wilderness Systems marketing manager Tracy Waldroup. Theyre a diverse group with a wide range of experience, but they all have one thing in common: they enjoy sharing their love of kayak fishing with everyone.


Committed to continual research and testing to create the best possible products for kayak anglers, Wilderness Systems will continue to collaborate with the Pro Staff to provide design insights and test new product innovations.


As committed kayak anglers, we are out on the water as much as possible, and its exciting to bring our insights, feedback and experiences back to a design team that is receptive and eager to incorporate these ideas to make Wilderness Systems products the best possible gear for our sport, said Chad Hoover, Wilderness Systems Pro Staff director. Being a part of the brands Pro Staff affords us the unique and rewarding opportunity to see our contributions come to life in a way that opens doors for new participants and fosters growth in the kayak fishing community. Im excited to work with this years highly talented Pro Staff to continue pushing the limits of our sport and furthering the work of the Wilderness Systems brand.
