The name John Murray has been synonymous with being a professional angler for decades. In a career that began in the West in the 80's, through to the Bassmaster tours, and finally into the BPT tour, Murray has been a fixture, and one of the sport's most favored sons.
Murray said that joining the team was an easy choice, because of a long history with the founder, and finally the equipment. "I have known and fished around Jesse (Tacoronte, founder of Enigma Fishing) for 30 years, so joining a company run by a friend was easy," he said. "Even with that familiarity, I need the equipment to be of the utmost standard for performance, and everything I've used from Enigma during this process has been amazing. When the opportunity presented itself for me to make a change, I jumped at the change to use and endorse Enigma Fishing; I am looking forward to using them in 2019 and beyond."
Tacoronte, the founder of Enigma Fishing, and a professional angler on the Bassmaster Elite Series himself, said that adding Murray to the team was something he relished. "I've fished against, and looked up to John for many years. He is the best kind of person, and represents our whole sport in a way that anyone would be proud to have on their team," he said. "He brings additional veteran credibility to the Enigma brand, and will help us promote the company to a whole new group of anglers.
Besides, John has been taking my money for going on 30 years now, it's time to have him help me make some money now," Tacoronte said with a chuckle."
Murray joins a team that includes fellow MLF BPT pro Aaron Martens; a three-time Bassmaster Angler of the Year, FLW Tour winner Tim Fredericks, and Tacoronte, who is entering his second full season on the Bassmaster Elite Series.
