Quantum Adds Ashley to Pro Team

Twenty-eight-year-old Casey Ashley has already notched two Bassmaster Elite Series victories and four Bassmaster Classic qualifications in just five years on tour. He now joins a Quantum roster of pro anglers that is rich with legends, and prideful of its exclusivity and longevity.

“What’s crazy is how light and smooth Quantum’s new EXO and Smoke are compared to the reels and rods I was using just five years ago when I got my first Elite Series win,†said Ashley, who is an extremely simple angler, choosing the same hand-tied jig, whether he’s casting or pitching it.   “It’s really obvious that the guys at Quantum have their hearts and heads in building the best products in the industry.â€

Along with racking up a list of impressive accomplishments as a pro angler, Ashley has also recorded a CD in Nashville. But amid his many accomplishments, he remains humbled by the opportunity to join Quantum’s team.

“Obviously, Quantum has the greatest pro team in the business, and all the pros that are with them have been there for years,†said Casey.   “That kind of longevity is rare, but it speaks highly of the quality of their product and the way the company treats people. I hope I can do a good job of following in those guys’ footsteps.â€

Ashley joins a pro staff that includes Kevin VanDam, Mike McClelland, Gary Klein, Shaw Grigsby, Greg Hackney, Dean Rojas, Tommy Biffle and Gerald Swindle.
