Wiley X, the leading protective polarised eyewear brand, has added the 2016 World Carp Classic winners to its European Elite Fishing Team.
It has signed up Karel Nikl, Jan Dadák and Jakub Erhart Kumsta, who were members of the Czech team that took the title in September on their home water, Lake Novomlynska. Wiley X is a flagship sponsor of the competition and its sister tournament, the World Predator Classic, and invites the winners of both to become part of its team.
Dadák said: “This was our sixth consecutive appearance in the World Carp Classic and one of the things I have learnt in all that time is that you need to keep your eyes protected. I have had Wiley X sunglasses before and have to say that a proper pair of polarised eyewear makes a big difference in tricky situations.
“Eyes are one of the carp angler’s biggest weapons and you have to protect them from all the hazards. So we are very happy and proud to be part of the Wiley X European Elite Fishing Team now and be able to use these brilliant products to catch more fish and hopefully win the WCC again.”
Wiley X EMEA Vice President and Outdoor Director, Thomas Wæver, added: “It is a great honour for us to sign with the fifth winning team of this great tournament. Since Wiley X entered the WCC as a sponsor back in 2012, all the winning teams are still with us and benefiting from our great eyewear. We have already learnt a lot from this year’s successful team and we look forward to the future.
“Having just signed a distributor late last year in the Czech Republic and Slovakia, I am sure Wiley X will benefit from having this team on board in these markets as well as in carp angling across Europe.”
