FLW Tour pro and Bassmaster Classic competitor Shin Fukae has signed Yamamoto as his title sponsor for 2015. Both Fukae and legendary angler Larry Nixon will run Yamamoto wrapped boats on the FLW Tour in 2015 and Fukae will have his boat on display when he competes in his first Bassmaster Classic in February on Lake Hartwell.
“I’ve been using Yamamoto products since I was a kid in Japan,” Fukae said. “I first met Gary and Beverly over 10 years ago, and our friendship and business relationship continues to grow. As many fishing fans know, I enjoy finesse fishing so the partnership with Yamamoto is a great fit. The Senko and the Shad Shape Worm in particular have enabled me to earn lots of checks over the course of my career. I can’t wait to win more tournaments with Yamamoto products.”
