Knoxville, TN — Omega Custom Tackle has changed ownership with professional angler Taylor Watkins, and wife Noel, acquiring the tackle company from current owners Brad and Michele Fuller. The change comes after six years of management by the Fuller’s which saw Omega grow substantially and laid a great foundation for the company to continue to build on.
“We are proud of what we accomplished and added many new, innovative products while working to make Omega Custom Tackle what it is today,” said Michele Fuller. “We are proud of the business and are excited to continue on our new journey with the National Professional Fishing League. We know Taylor and Noel will continue to grow the brand.”
Watkins is in his second year of fishing the NPFL trail and after winning the season one finale at Grand Lake O’ the Cherokees last fall, he recently earned his second victory at Lake Cumberland in February. Taylor and Noel plan to take their experience in the fishing industry to elevate the brand and take pride in offering a diverse selection of high-quality baits and colors.
“We are excited to take over Omega and do our part to continue the growth of the company and expand its reach,” Taylor Wakins said. “We are excited for this next chapter and want to thank all of the Omega customers, retailers and the team for their continued support.”
