Simms Fishing Products is heading to the 2015 Bassmaster Classic with a new weapon in its arsenal-Casey Ashley.

Casey Ashley officially joined the Simms Bass Pro Team just in time to compete in the 2015 Bassmaster Classic in Ashley’s home state. Simms will be the angler’s official apparel and footwear sponsor, providing Casey with industry-leading gear for the Classic and beyond.

“As we further deepen our roots in the world of bass fishing, we are thrilled to have Casey join our world class pro team,” says Matt Millette, Simms’ Sr. Director, Brand Marketing. “Casey is not only one of the top anglers in the world, but he is of upmost character. His drive and passion for fishing and the experience that surrounds it is a perfect match for Simms.”

“I have admired Simms gear for a long time and have worn it in competition because it helps me to compete at the highest level,” says Ashley. “To officially join forces with such a passionate company is an amazing opportunity.”

Casey Asley joins the other members of the Simms Pro Bass Team: Aaron Martens, Ish Monroe, Shaw Grigsby and Gary Klein.
