MINNEAPOLIS, Jan. 4, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- FLW announced today that Z-Man® Fishing Products, the nation's fastest-growing fishing lure brand, will return as an associate sponsor of the world's largest tournament-fishing organization for the 2013 season. Financial terms of the deal were not disclosed.
Z-Man will receive exposure across several of FLW's platforms, including its tournaments and Expos, multiple websites and FLW Bass Fishing magazine.
Z-Man's pro staff, known as the Z-Squad, is led by Chevy pro Luke Clausen of Spokane, Wash., one of only five anglers in the sport to have won both the Forrest Wood Cup and the Bassmaster Classic.
Based out of Charleston, S.C., Z-Man has manufactured high-quality fishing tackle for more than 25 years. Their Original Chatterbait® brand bladed swim jig is still dominant in the bass scene and has been joined by a wide selection of Z-Man's proprietary 10X Tough ElaZtech® soft plastics for nearly every fishing scenario. At the 2012 ICAST show Z-Man launched four technique-specific baits, the ChatterBait Elite bladed jig, FattyZ power finesse worm, Hula StickZ hybrid finesse bait and Palmetto BugZ flipping bait, which promise to garner considerable attention in 2013.
FLW is the industry's premier tournament-fishing organization, providing unparalleled fishing resources and entertainment to our sponsors, fans and host communities. FLW is offering anglers of all skill levels the opportunity to compete for millions in prize money nationwide in 2013 over the course of 231 tournaments across five tournament circuits, four of which provide an avenue to the sport's richest payday and most coveted championship trophy – the Forrest Wood Cup.
