As a new sponsor of the Series, AFTCO will support collegiate anglers in a variety of ways ranging from conservation programs, discount programs and more at each of the Cabela's Collegiate Bass Fishing Series events this season.
Family owned and operated by three generations of the Shedd family, the American Fishing Tackle Company is a market leader in shorts, performance shirts, technical woven shirts, outerwear, fleece, hats and big game fishing tackle. AFTCO created the world's first ever pair of fishing shorts in 1989 when they introduced the legendary M01 Original Fishing Shorts, still the world's most popular fishing short. In 2018, AFTCO officially enters the freshwater market bringing their award winning products and 10% Conservation pledge. AFTCO contributes more than 10% of company profits to fishing conservation, for protecting our resources, and ensuring a sustainable fishery for future generations in their 10% pledge to protect and conserve.
"We are so excited to partner with ACA as we enter the freshwater market in 2018. We feel our products are a great fit for young anglers and we have some very exciting conservation programs planned with them in 2018 at many of their successful events across the country," Casey Shedd, Vice-President, AFTCO.
