Lew’s announced that it has added Bass Fishing Hall of Famer Shaw Grigsby to the company's pro staff.
The Gainesville, Fla. veteran has been one of the most influential anglers in the sport for more than 20 years as both a competitor and TV host. A founding partner of Major League Fishing and the Bass Pro Tour, his résumé includes nine Bassmaster victories.
“Shaw has always been an important part of Strike King, and having him choose Lew’s feels like welcoming a family member home,” said Lew's and Strike King director of pro staff and media relations Mark Copley. “Shaw’s career is one that anyone would be proud to have and he’s a one-in-a-million kind of person; we couldn’t be prouder to see him adding the Lew’s logo to his jersey.”
Said Grigsby: “One of the most exciting things for me is that Lew’s makes great products for everyone. Not only do they make amazing rods and reels for me to compete with, but they make something of quality for every angler, at any budget, and they give back, too.
“From the American Hero program that supports first responders and our military to the high school and college programs that help grow our sport, Lew’s is involved at every level. It really was an easy decision for me to sign with Lew’s, I’ve already known so many of them from Strike King, and the product just makes it that much better. I’m really excited to be joining the Lew’s team.”
