“Jason is a terrific angler, and we’re extremely proud and excited that he will be joining the Duckett Fishing team. Although Jason has an excellent track record, his reputation goes a step further, because he is also one of truly outstanding and impressive people on the Elite Series tour. Jason has a great personality. He’s a touch competitor, and he’s a true also professional when he’s representing sponsors,” Duckett said.
Quinn said he couldn’t be happier to be joining the Duckett Fishing team.
“I have great respect for what Boyd Duckett has done as an angler and in business. He’s a true leader in our sport, and I’m really excited to be part of what Boyd is doing within our industry,” Quinn said.
Duckett, a highly successful businessman, announced the formation of Duckett Fishing in November 2009, and the company began its manufacturing operation early the following year. The company’s signature product is a white, lightweight rod known as MICROMagic that utilizes microguide technology.
“To be as plain as I can be about it, the rods are awesome,” Quinn said. “The microguide technology is phenomenal. They’re simply the best rods I’ve ever put in my hands. They’re light and sensitive, and you can fish comfortably with them all day long.”
