As part of its association with the Women’s Bassmaster Tour, LaserLure will receive space and signage at each WBT event to promote and display their products.
The sponsorship agreement includes a large presence across BASS’ multimedia assets, including Bassmaster Magazine, BASS Times and Fishing Tackle Retailer in addition to ESPN Outdoors programming on ESPN2.
“LaserLure is building a fine reputation as an innovator and avid supporter of the fishing industry,” said Tom Ricks, vice president and general manager, BASS & ESPN Outdoors. “We are pleased to align the Women’s Bassmaster Tour with such a creative force.”
