Hayabusa U.S.A., Inc., recently added FLW Tour pro Carl Jocumsen to its U.S. pro-staff. Jocumsen joins current pro-staffers Cliff Pirch, Casey Scanlon, Fred Roumbanis, Matt Herren, Bryan Schmitt, Pete Ponds and Skylar Hamilton.

“I only use the highest-quality fishing tackle available. I began using Hayabusa products in 2017 after hearing good reports from highly qualified anglers,” says Jocumsen. “I am super impressed and love the range of hooks they have available. The sharpness and super-slick coating are factors that I believe are superior.

“I look forward to building and growing with this brand as it becomes one of the top-selling hooks in the U.S.A.”

“Hayabusa branding and exposure are growing rapidly in the U.S.,” says Kurt Dove, Hayabusa U.S.A., Inc., general manager. “We believe Carl will assist us greatly moving forward in our growth. Carl is a tackle guru, and for him to see the benefits of using Hayabusa’s high-quality products continues to validate our belief that we will become a household name here in the U.S. bass fishing market.

Hayabusa is the No. 1-selling bass fishing hook in Japan and is also known for its popular saltwater line, including the world-renown SABIKI product. Yumi Shida is president of Hayabusa U.S.A., Inc., based in Ontario, Calif.
