Noted bass angler Cody Meyer from Grass Valley, Calif. is now on board with Shimano’s expanding pro staff, casting Jackall baits on Shimano rods matched with PowerPro-filled Shimano reels, announces Bob Mahoney, marketing manager for Shimano. Meyers begins his new affiliation with the Shimano brand at the upcoming FLW Tour stop at Lake Okeechobee starting February 7.
“Cody has been a great asset to Jackall Lures, and we look forward to him helping us bring even more awareness to not only Jackall, but also Shimano and PowerPro as well,” Mahoney said. “He’ll be assisting our team at tournaments, dealers functions and tackle shows as his schedule allows, plus we’ll be listening to him for input on rods, reels, line and lures.”
A force on the FLW Tour going back to 2009, Meyers will be fishing all the FLW Majors this year, along with select EverStart tournaments and B.A.S.S. Northern Opens. “I’ve already had the opportunity to fish Shimano Sustain reels on Cumara dropshot rods,” said Meyers. “Match that tackle up with a Jackall FlickShake worm along with the added sensitivity from PowerPro Super8Slick braid, and you truly take fishing to a new level.”
