Hayabusa U.S.A. has added seven new FLW Tour anglers to their pro staff. The new additions include Bradley Hallman, Matt Reed, Bill McDonald, Nick LeBrun, Miles ‘Sonar’ Burghoff, Jay Brainard and Tyler Woolcott. These anglers will join current pro staff members Casey Scanlon, Bryan Schmitt, Pete Ponds, Blake Smith and Grae Buck.

Hayabusa is the best-selling bass fishing hook in Japan and also makes popular saltwater products.

“As we continue to grow our brand in the U.S. and expand with retailers in all parts of the country, it is critical for us to market utilizing some of the best anglers in the bass fishing industry,” says Hayabusa General Manager, Kurt Dove. “We have a great mix of anglers competing on the FLW Tour, from FLW champions and angling veterans to young up-and-comers and FLW Tour rookies. We feel that this is our appeal to consumers as well, a little something of the best for everyone.”

“Hayabusa fishing hooks are the absolute best I have ever used,” says Hallman, who has two FLW Tour wins to his credit. “The attention to detail and different styles of technique-specific hooks give me an edge that improves my chances of catching every fish that bites. I am happy to get an opportunity to work closely with them early on in their brand growth.”

Yumi Shida is President of Hayabusa U.S.A., Inc. and the company is based in Denton, Texas.
