A familiar snack food brand will return to the bass fishing world in 2018.
Pringles has announced a partnership with Arkansas pro and veteran FLW Tour angler Greg Bohannan for the upcoming season. Bohannan and Pringles will conduct meet and greet events throughout the season (30 such events are planned so far) and the brand will be featured on his boat and truck.
Pringles and parent company Kellogg’s have had sponsorship ties to FLW over the years through FLW’s partnership with Walmart and Bohannan fished out of a Kellogg’s Pop-Tarts boat under that deal.
Bohannan couldn’t be happier to bring the non-endemic brand back into the bass fishing fold.
“I’m extremely thrilled to get to work for the Kellogg’s bunch again,” he said. “I’m working for some of same people again, so they know what they’re getting out of me and I know what to expect from them so it makes for an easy transition.
“They said they had some opportunities and some new marketing plans with Pringles and thought it would be a good fit.”
Arkansas pro Greg Bohannan, who’s competing this week at the Forrest Wood Cup on Lake Murray in Columbia, S.C., recently reached a sponsorship agreement with CreekKooler, which manufactures floating, towable coolers designed for various watersports. Creek smallmouth anglers in the Ozarks region where Bohannan lives will find the CreekKooler especially handy on sweltering
“I am extremely excited to represent this new product,” says Bohannan. “My family has found numerous uses for the CreekKooler. It can be towed behind your kayak, taken to the dock or the beach, or you can throw it in your pool to keep all of your drinks cold. They are lightweight, keep your drinks cold for days and are very affordable.”
CreekKooler also released an official statement about the partnership: “Our team at CreekKooler is excited to partner with Greg Bohannan. Greg is a high-character individual with values that we at CreekKooler share. We are thrilled to partner with Greg as a respected, professional fisherman, but also as a man with a passion for community service, helping youth enjoy the outdoors and being respectful of our neighbors – all values that are important to us. Greg is in a unique position to help us spread the word about our new product, CreekKooler, and its many uses for fishermen and outdoors enthusiasts.”
The CreeKooler will be on display at the Forrest Wood Cup Expo Friday-Sunday, Aug. 11-13 at the Columbia Metropolitan Convention Center. For more information, visit KanoolerProducts.com.
