With Young Gun Jacob Wheeler
Minnetonka, Minnesota (January, 17 2013) – After becoming the youngest angler to win the Forrest Wood Cup in 2012, it’s safe to say Jacob Wheeler will be an on-the-water force throughout the New Year. Rapala®, the world’s favorite fishing lure, agrees.In 2012, Rapala and Storm® lures, along with Trigger X® soft baits sponsored the rising star and have extended the relationship for 2013, in addition to bolstering the sponsorship by adding elite brands VMC® hooks and Sufix® fishing line.

“Rapala and Trigger X, specifically the new Rapala X-Rap® Prop and Trigger X Flippin’ Tube, were key factors in winning the Forrest Wood Cup,” says Wheeler. “I’m thrilled to continue my sponsorship with these brands and to be involved with VMC and Sufix – two brands that should be a staple in any anglers tackle arsenal.”

Throughout his career, Wheeler has won a variety of the industry’s top tournaments, including becoming the youngest angler in FLW Outdoor history to win the BFL All-American.

“Not only is Jacob an amazing angler, but a respected promoter to boot, and we are excited to have him representing our brands,” remarked Dan Quinn, field promotions coordinator for Rapala USA. “Jacob will have a strong influence on our brands.”

Meticulously fine-tuned for the ultimate performance, Trigger X soft baits portray a mesmerizing action through the water. Sufix, in partnership with Gore, the makers of GORE® performance Fibers, created a breakthrough in fishing line technology with its Sufix 832 lines.
