Although they live on almost exactly the same latitudinal line but nearly 2,000 miles apart, professional bass anglers John Murray of Phoenix, Ariz., and Michael Murphy of Lexington, S.C., have both inked new sponsorship deals with Lew's.
SPRINGFIELD, Mo. While many fishing tackle companies have been trimming their pro staffs, the Lew's team continues to get stronger. Lew's, a great tradition in American bass fishing equipment, has been busily assembling a group of high-profile anglers to help launch their new lineup of baitcast and spinning reels and rods for 2011.
Lew's announced today the signing of two-time Elite Series champion and Bassmaster Classic qualifier Kevin Short. Short will use the Lew's Speed Spool and Speed Spin line of reels during competition on the Bassmaster Elite Series, Bassmaster Opens, and FLW EverStart Series during 2011.
