Spring City. Tenn. – February 2020 – John Murray, MLF Bass Pro Tour pro from Spring City, Tenn. announces his inclusion to the Sixgill Fishing Products pro staff. Murray, one of the most accomplished anglers to ever come from the Western United States will be using Sixgill rods and reels as he competes in 2020.
Murray joins a Sixgill Fishing Products pro staff that counts fellow Major League Fishing Pro Fred Roumbanis and Bassmaster Elite Series pros Tyler Carriere, Tyler Rivet, Randy Sullivan and Dale Hightower among its members.
Murray said that the gear itself has been a joy to use, and that he is looking forward to working with the company. “The best thing about a company like Sixgill, is that they make great products for every level of angler,” said Murray. “They have series that will help beginning anglers who hire my guide service and high-end, advanced gear that fills my needs on the Bass Pro Tour; and they are so great to work with, that I look forward to every communication.”
Murray is currently utilizing the Sixgill Siren Rods matched with the Wraith baitcasting reels and Banshee spinning reels. He said that while he has found products to rely on, he looks forward to being more involved in development in the future. “The products are very light, very sensitive, but strong enough to handle anything I’ve thrown at them,” he said. “There are products that I use for everything that I do, and I look forward to working to help them develop new products along the way.”
Aaron Hansen, Professional Angler Manager for Sixgill Fishing Products likes what Murray brings to the table. “John brings a vast range of knowledge to the fishing community and is known around the world to be one of the best anglers in the business,” said Hansen. “With all of his career accomplishments, he adds a lot to the brand. We are more than excited to have him join our Professional Staff for the 2020 season and we look forward to a great year with John on and off the water.”
