Collierville, TN – Strike King Lure Company recently announced the addition of Andy Montgomery of Blacksburg, S.C., to its national team for 2012. At age 29, Montgomery is a young star on the rise, is very competitive, loves shallow-water fishing yet has the ability to adapt to any situation on the water, and has the desire and work ethic to grow in the sport. He is married and being a successful professional fisherman has been a lifelong dream of his.

Montgomery is a five-time Forrest Wood Cup qualifier, a 2011 Bassmaster Classic qualifier and a 2010 Bassmaster Southern Open champion. His first event of the 2012 season is the Walmart FLW Tour Open on Lake Okeechobee. Montgomery is excited to join the Strike King team and feels that the company’s vast lure selection and polarized sunglasses will give him the tools he needs to win on the water. He also is attracted to the family-friendly, professional and fishing enthusiasts’ culture of the company.

“We look forward to working with Andy for a long time,” said Mark Copley, National Pro Staff manager of Strike King Lure Company.

Montgomery joins one of the greatest pro staffs in the nation, which includes such veteran stars as Kevin VanDam, Denny Brauer, Shaw Grigsby, Mark Davis, Greg Hackney, Mark Rose, George Cochran, and Mark Menendez and young stars like James Niggemeyer and Jonathon VanDam.
