Hobie has joined forces with Australia’s leading bass fishing organisation to take kayak tournament fishing for the popular species to the ‘next level’
The US-based company has united with B.A.S.S. Australia Nation to further strengthen the Hobie Kayak Bass Series and establish it as the ‘recognised standard of excellence’ in bass fishing tournaments across the country.
Hobie says that the affiliation will help in reaching their shared goal of producing the best kayak bass fishing series in Australia.
“Hobie and B.A.S.S. Australia Nation share similar values in tournament fishing events. Each encourages enjoyment while maintaining safety, courtesy, honesty, sportsmanship, good conservation practices, a strict adherence to fishery regulatory standards and a desire to perpetuate quality, competitive bass fishing opportunities. It’s a perfect fit,” said Steve Fields, Managing Director of Hobie Cat Australasia.
“I can’t think of anything more exciting in the kayak world than Hobie and B.A.S.S. Australia Nation partnering to create the ultimate bass kayak tournament series for the anglers,” added Fields. “With this new venture we expect kayak tournaments to reach new heights, and, as time goes on, more and more will take part in the competitions. Bring on the 2015 kayak season.”
Drew McGrath, Managing Director of B.A.S.S. Australia Nation, said: “The Hobie Kayak Bream Series and Hobie Fishing World Championship events have both been enormous successes. They have raised the bar in terms of kayak fishing tournaments and have set the standards for others to follow worldwide.
“With this new association, B.A.S.S. Australia Nation and Hobie intend to take kayak bass fishing in Australia to these same world standards.”
