Leading protective eyewear manufacturer Wiley X has snapped up one of the world’s top lure anglers to join its European Elite Fishing Team.
Slovakian Peter Hornak, who recently won the 13th FIPSed World Bank Fishing with Lures Championship in Northern Ireland, joins a star-studded Wiley X line-up that includes World Predator Classic winners Luc Coppens and Jeremy Staverman as well as top predator angler Stefan Trumstedt and fly fishing legend Charles Jardine.
A top angler at home in Slovakia and a member of the national spinning team since 2009, Hornak said: “I have tried several models of Wiley X glasses over the last few years and really can’t imagine fishing without them.
“It is really helpful for me to see what is happening under the water and these glasses have helped me a lot to catch nice fish and achieve good results at international championships.”
Wiley X’s European Vice President and Outdoor Director, Thomas Wæver, added: “We have a commitment to provide unrivalled polarisation, optical clarity and protection for anglers around the world so it is hugely important for us that fishermen at the top of their game like Peter benefit from using them.
“We are delighted to have him join the team. He brings a lot of knowledge and experience and he also gives us a profile in a new country – an important aspect for a fast-growing company likes ours.”
