Redington has been confirmed as a 2016 Derby sponsor! We’re excited to announce they are donating a Butter Stick this year. The Butter Stick is built from high modulus fiberglass, premium components, and they gave it retro styling. The Butter Stick has enough flex to deliver delicate presentations, but all the strength to reach fish on the far bank.
Have you got your entry in yet? Ya don’t get ’em if ya don’t go.
Who wants to hear about another sponsor? Another possible prize? How about #WholesaleSports? Three stores, Kamloops, Westbank, and Langley, have all jumped in to sponsor our #fishingderby and raise money for a great cause! Whether you go in the store or shop online, they have everything you need to tackle the outdoors.
The #CanadianDiabetesAssociation and #SteelheadSociety of BC will both be attending the Anglers’ Dinner and tell us about their organizations.
A big welcome to Sage Rods as they join the Sponsorship team again this year. Sage will be donating a Circa Rod to this year’s derby.
To anyone who knows, the CIRCA is a perfect addition to your rod collection, allowing you to approach a river with stealthy, short-range accuracy. Its hypnotically smooth slower tempo combined with crisp and precise loading and unloading of each cast results in unmatched accuracy and delicate presentations. Will you be the lucky winner?
