Doug Minor, VP of Sales and Marketing of Strike King Lure Company, is excited about the Company’s sponsorship of the Army Bass Anglers’ organization and it’s FORCE on FORCE television program. “Most of our country’s military community are avid outdoorsmen and women and are all really special people. We look forward to this venue as a way to share our products with them and to support ArmyBassAnglers and its efforts to “Support” those who do serve and those who have served. Fishing is a great way for active duty and veterans to “get away from it all” and we like ArmyBassAnglers’ targeted promotion of fishing to the military community.”
Cody Roberson, President of ArmyBassAnglers says, “We are extremely excited about joining forces with Strike King Lure Company, the preeminent company in the lure industry. They make a complete line of lures and sunglasses for the angler and are a great fit for our mission. Strike King’s lures dominate bass fishing and we want our guys fishing with the best!
Strike King is another incredible organization to add to our arsenal of fantastic sponsors that make our mission possible. ABA is continually seeking premier companies to support our mission and be ‘combat multipliers’ to add to the family of sponsors. We couldn’t be happier and look forward to a long relationship both on and off the water supporting opportunities to get our veterans on the water at every turn—HOOAH!”
