FLW Tour angler Charlie Evans and Bass Pro Shops have entered into an agreement for the 2019 season in which Bass Pro Shops will share top billing with Paw Patrol on Evans’ jersey, tow vehicle and boat wrap.
Evans, a former FLW executive, launched his angling career in 2011 with the intention of promoting the sport that had been kind to him. In recent years, he's partnered with companies that market user-friendly fishing tackle and equipment for children.
“Lil Anglers was the perfect fit for me; their Kid Casters brand of Paw Patrol No-Tangler rods are ideal tools to introduce kids to fishing,” Evans said. “I jumped at the opportunity to share Lil Anglers’ mission of encouraging kids and their family to get outdoors.
“The only thing that could improve having Paw Patrol’s Skye, Chase and Marshall along with me at tournaments and appearances is partnering with the company that provides more support to our sport than any other. One of Bass Pro Shops’ key conservation initiatives is connecting kids and families to the outdoors.”
Christine Wamsley, Director of Marketing for Bass Pro Shops, said, “We are excited that Charlie has joined our Pro Staff. He brings a ton of industry experience with him and we love his involvement with kids through Paw Patrol. The Kid Casters rods are available in our stores and on our website.”
