Lake Mills, Iowa – StowMaster, Inc. announced today the signing of Kevin Van Dam to StowMaster’s National Pro Staff Team. VanDam is recognized as one of the top anglers in bass fishing history winning the prestigious B.A.S.S. Angler of the Year Title in 1992, 1996, 1999, and again for 2008. VanDam has also won FLW Angler of the Year (2001) and has qualified for eighteen Bassmaster Classic championships, winning the coveted events in 2001 and 2005. With total career earnings of over $3.3 million, VanDam is currently ranked number one in the world.
“We are extremely excited about having Kevin onboard and we are looking forward to working with him in developing products for the avid bass angler,” says Steve Vogts, StowMaster’s VP of Marketing “The use of landing nets by bass fishermen has now become the norm rather than the exception, but many anglers still forgo their use because of boat storage limitations. Bass fishermen like an uncluttered boat deck which means traditional landing nets just don’t fit the bill. Nobody wants to be tripping over a net or having it blow off the deck at 70MPH. With Kevin’s help we feel we have developed the ultimate bass boat net.”
StowMaster’s new KVD Bass Boat Net is designed especially to fold and stow in a bass boat’s rod locker or other storage compartments where it’s out of the way until needed. The new KVD model features the patented 20″ x 24″ folding hoop design with a special telescoping handle that extends from a closed position of 38″ to 80″ allowing anglers extra reach when needed. The net features a knotless fish-friendly mesh coated with a special rubber polymer to prevent hooks from embedding in the mesh. The entire net system folds down to a compact 10″x 38″ for easy storage in a bass boats rod locker or other storage compartments. The new KVD model is now available exclusively through Bass Pro Shops.
