Wright & McGill Co. of Denver, Colo., announces a new partnership with professional bass angler Rick Clunn of Ava, Mo. Rick has been fishing professionally for 37 years and won ESPN's Greatest Angler Debate in 2005.
With his expertise, he's the right match for Wright & McGill when it comes to selecting and designing bass rods to meet the competitive angler's demands. Rick will be fishing with Wright & McGill Signature S-Curve and S-Glass bass rods and Victory reels.
His four Bassmaster Classic championships and 32 career Classic appearances (including 28 in a row) are records that may never be broken. He currently ranks fourth on B.A.S.S.'s all-time prize money list with more than $2 million in career earnings. "I am very excited to be part of the W&M team and look forward to fishing the very best rods on the market during 2011 and beyond," said Clunn.
Chris Russell, marketing director for Wright & McGill, said, "Rick is the ultimate addition to the W&M team. With his years of experience and unmatched knowledge Rick is the perfect pro to fish W&M rods and reels.
He demands the very best in his fishing equipment and will not settle for products that do not live up to his requirements. Rick is also very in tune with what anglers and fans are looking for to help them be more successful out on the water.
We are excited to have Rick fishing our S-Curve and S-Glass rods and performance reels and are looking forward to incorporating his knowledge into new items in the future." For more information on Wright & McGill products visit www.wright-mcgill.com, and you can follow Wright & McGill on Facebook.
