UK-based FishingMatters has announced a major pro-staff appointment as it continues to grow its strong portfolio of fly brands.
Journalist and international fly fisherman Paul Procter has joined the company which includes Partridge of Redditch, Sprite, Varivas, PRO-Sportfisher, Rite Bobbin and Marryat products in its line-up.
Procter has been a leading member of the Partridge Pro-Team for some time and has been tying its hooks for as long as he can remember.
FishingMatters Managing Director Mark Hamnett said: “Paul is one of the most recognised and respected people in the world of fly tying and fly fishing. We have worked closely in the past and look forward to broadening the scope of our relationship by developing further marketing opportunities and new terminal tackle products.
“Paul is meticulous in his work and fits well with our approach to modernising our brands and product offering.”
Procter said: “I am thrilled at the prospect of working closer with a company that has such a great range and great plans for the future. This new relationship offers me the chance to influence the development of new product and to keep Partridge and FishingMatters at the forefront of our industry.
“Already we have launched several exciting patterns this year and have others in the pipeline which are certain to prove popular in years to come.”
