With the growth of kayak fishing, it's no surprise to hear about Wilderness Systems expanding their Pro Staff for 2015. The Wildly Pro Staff has been beefed up with an additional nineteen kayak anglers representing the company throughout the country in kayak fishing tournaments, kayak shows, and other events specific to the kayak fishing industry.

GREENVILLE, S.C. (March 20, 2015) – The Wilderness Systems® 2015 Pro Staff has expanded in 2015 to include 56 of the top guides, tournament competitors, writers, photographers and passionate kayak angling experts in North America. This year Pro Staff ambassadors will be competing at premier fishing tournaments, hosting community events and demos, and teaching people how to become great kayak anglers. Wilderness Systems, the leading angling kayak manufacturer, also incorporates Pro Staff anglers in the research, development, and testing process and their in-depth knowledge and expertise are invaluable in creating and manufacturing high quality, performance-driven angling kayaks.

The Pro Staff anglers are authentic ambassadors for Wilderness Systems on both a community and national level whether they are competing at fishing events, guiding, running demos and clinics across the country, or sharing their passion for kayak fishing with their communities,” said Evan Lyendecker, marketing manager for Wilderness Systems. “The Wilderness Systems Pro Staff is an integral part of the brand, as they test every boat extensively and provide invaluable, real-time product feedback on products.

Four experienced members of the Pro Staff will serve as Regional Managers, helping to maintain organization and foster community within the quickly growing team. Bobby Clark manages the Pro Staff in the Southeast, Troy Meyerhoeffer manages the Northeast and Canada, Jeff Little manages the Mid-Atlantic and Midwest, and CJ Siebler manages the West.

Wilderness Systems is excited to add 19 new members to the 2015 Pro Staff. Throughout the year, both new and returning Pro Staff anglers can be found out on the water at tournaments such the KBF Open, Ride the Bull, and the Extreme Kayak Fishing Tournament as well as several events that benefit Heroes on the Water. With the top kayak anglers in North America standing behind their product, Wilderness Systems is poised to continue advancing the sport at all levels through innovative, high quality product designs and spreading a love for kayak fishing to everyone from beginning anglers to seasoned veterans.
