Legendary rod and reel maker Abu Garcia turns 100 this year, but its visitors to the booth at the Bassmaster Classic Expo who can receive the presents. With retail sales promotions available only at this year’s Classic as well as the opportunity to meet some of professional bass fishing’s top pros, Abu Garcia continues to deliver anglers the gear they need to fish to win.
The 2021 Bassmaster Classic Outdoor Expo will run Friday through Sunday at the Will Rogers Memorial Center in Fort Worth, Texas offering Abu Garcia fans the chance to meet some of their favorite pros while taking advantage of this year’s sales promotions that provides a complimentary Abu Garcia hooded sweatshirt (MSRP $49.99) with the purchase of a qualifying rod or rod-and-reel combo.
After visiting the Abu Garcia booth at the Classic Outdoor Expo, fans can make their way to the nearby Dickies Arena where they can cheer on members of the Abu Garcia pro staff fishing the 2021 Bassmaster Classic on Lake Ray Roberts. Pro staff members competing for this year’s Classic crown include Hank Cherry, Hunter Shryock, John Cox, Luke Palmer, Brandon Card, Micah Frazier, Chad Pipkens, Jason Williamson, Brandon Cobb, Shane Lehew, Bryan New, Matt Robertson and Keith Carson.
Longtime friends and fellow Abu Garcia pro staff members Cox and Carson are profiled in a short documentary film, “Tinboat Dreams,” which will be shown during the Bassmaster Classic weigh in on Sunday, June 13. The film, which chronicles the pair’s rise from boat-borrowing teenagers in Florida to professional bass anglers competing in the Bassmaster Classic, is a humorous look at how a pair of kids obsessed with fishing followed their dreams to the sport’s highest level.
