Top matchman announced as latest signing for tackle giant.
Match fishing ace Rob Wootton has joined Shimano as a sponsored angler.
The Leicestershire-based rod leaves Middy to join the tackle giant and will be responsible for promoting Shimano products in the media as well as becoming involved in the development of new tackle for the UK market.
“Rob is one of the most prominent figures in the UK angling press at the moment and is an exceptionally talented angler who has proved that he is far more than just a commercial expert over the last few years with big victories on canals and rivers as well as appearances in big money finals such as Fish ‘O Mania,” said Shimano Normark’s Marketing Manager Steve Cole.
“We’re delighted to have Rob joining the Shimano team and feel that it will only make the brand stronger.”
