“We are excited to join ACA in 2023 and to begin working directly with college anglers. Student anglers have advanced so far in the past few years and they are now looking for the most technical products to give them an advantage. Gamakatsu will help these young anglers catch more fish in 2023 with education about our wide range of products and a new scholastic program to allow them to easily get those items,” Ted Thibault, Sales Manager, Gamakatsu USA.
“We are looking forward to partnering with Gamakatsu for the 2023 season,” said Wade Middleton, President of CarecoTV and ACA Director. “Hooks are one of the most important items an angler uses. These college anglers will now be able to equip themselves with the sharpest hooks on the market and improve their success out on the water.”
Thousands of years ago, the fish hook was invented. Early versions of these hooks were made of wood and bone, or any other sharp items the people of those times could get their hands on. Fast forward to today, modern materials and manufacturing techniques have led to the development of hundreds of styles of extremely high-quality hooks designed for a wide array of fishing techniques.
Gamakatsu started producing world leading fish hooks in 1955. Superior materials and strict Japanese manufacturing processes produced the world’s sharpest fish hooks. Through the years, these hooks have proven to be the best on the market. From weekend anglers and bank fishermen, to touring professionals competing at the highest levels of the sport, anglers of all skill levels, targeting any species, can rely on Gamakatsu hooks to help them catch more fish!
Year after year, innovation after innovation, Gamakatsu continues to advance technology making the world’s best fishing hooks. In 1992, Gamakatsu USA was established and US anglers got to experience the premium Gamakatsu brand for the first time.
As part of this partnership with the ACA, Gamakatsu will be offering a discount program to collegiate anglers. College anglers are eligible to apply for a 35% off discount code. Apply for a discount code and review full program details here.
