When Edwin Evers launches his boat at Lake Conroe in sunny southeast Texas for the Toyota Texas Bass Classic later this month, you’ll have the chance to fish with him. But be warned, he will be fishing with bamboo. Evers will also fish with bamboo at the upcoming 2012 Bassmaster Classic near Shreveport, and throughout next year’s Elite Series season.
No, the graphite in Evers’ high performance rods will not be replaced with bamboo, but the polyester fibers in his clothing will.
Evers has recently formed a sponsorship agreement with tasc performance apparel company based in New Orleans that utilizes a unique natural fabric engineering process involving bamboo pulp and organic cotton to create a moisture wicking and anti-odor line of performance clothing for men and women. Plus, perhaps the greatest benefit to anglers is the UPF 50 sun protection that’s a part of each lightweight garment tasc offers.
Speaking of athletic women, Evers is married to one. Her name is Tuesday. She’s a former college scholarship softball player who bikes for exercise and is currently training for the Ragnar Relay. Tuesday isn’t bashful about her fondness for tasc’s bamboo performance technology. “When Edwin received his first shirts from tasc, I felt how soft they were, and how stylish they looked, and I was sort of jealous, so I went online and ordered three shirts for myself,” said Tuesday. “I wore them to jog in and I loved how they wicked moisture and were so soft on my skin, so I ordered several more,” said Tuesday.

While her husband Edwin still looks capable of playing defensive back as he once did collegiately, obviously it’s professional fishing, not football, where Evers has blazed a very bright career. Tasc performance provides the kind of technical all season comfort that Evers feels will help enhance his performance. “When you’re comfortable, you perform better. It’s as simple as that. Wearing tasc keeps me dry and protects me from the insane amount of sun we endure on the water,” said Evers.
“Plus, it’s made of naturally anti-microbial fibers so it doesn’t stink after you’ve sweat in it for 12-hours, which means Tuesday might actually be willing to give me hug at the end of a long practice day,” grinned Evers, who finished the past two seasons ranked as one of the top two points finishers in the highly-respected Toyota Tundra Bassmaster Angler of the Year race.
Evers won’t be the only one wearing bamboo performance technology at the Toyota Texas Bass Classic. Each pro angler and their corporate co-angler guests will receive a tasc shirt to wear while they cast for one of Conroe’s famed double-digit largemouths.
