Salmo North America, a division of Fox International Group, Europe’s premier fishing tackle manufacturer is pleased to announce they have reached a new partnership with Professional Edge Fishing and FLW Tour Angler, Hunter Freeman.

“We are really excited to be partnering with yet another promising young angler rising in the ranks of the FLW” says Greg DeVries, Director of Sales and Marketing for Salmo North America.  “Hunter’s passion for fishing and amazing work ethic aligns really well with Salmo’s approach to everything we do.  We are really looking forward to being an integral part of Hunter’s arsenal as he works towards achieve his goals.”   Hunter is the 2018 FLW College National Champion, and is now competing in the big leagues on the FLW Tour. He has enjoyed excellent success and is looking to make another run at the Forest Wood Cup .  “I’m very excited about this opportunity to work with Salmo” says Hunter Freeman. “Knowing every lure is crafted, tank tested, and tuned by hand is a gamechanger for optimal performance in my tournaments.”

Salmo, now in its 27th year, is a relative newcomer to the competitive bass market after enjoying award winning success in the northern fisheries worldwide. They continue to produce award-winning crankbaits at their facility in northern Poland. Each lure is literally hand-crafted by a team of artisans that take extreme pride in their craft, many of whom have been with the company for over 20 years.  Every lure is also individually tank tested and tuned by hand to ensure they meet the highest standard of performance.

Hunter Freeman is 22 years old from West Monroe, LA and is a 2018 FLW Tour Rookie. Hunter has $19,000 in career winnings in the FLW circuit and is eager to fish in another Forest Wood Cup. You can follow Hunter on Facebook, or Instagram.
