Carhartt announced that it's added B.A.S.S. anglers Caleb Sumrall and Chris and Trait Zaldain to the company's pro staff.
“We’re excited to welcome these world-class anglers to the Carhartt family,” said Brian Spiro, manager of partnerships and influencer marketing at Carhartt. “We know they will outwork them all, just as our rugged gear does for our consumers every day, either on the job or off.”
Sumrall, a former oil industry supply yard worker, became one of bass fishing’s dream-come-true stories in 2017. The husband and father of two young children went from being laid off in the southern Louisiana petroleum industry to becoming a B.A.S.S. Nation champion, earning a $40,000 cash prize and an invitation to become a Bassmaster Elite Series pro.
Chris Zaldain notched three runner-up finishes on the Elite Series in 2019 and qualified for his fifth Bassmaster Classic. Trait, his wife, is a Bassmaster Opens competitor.
