TOMBALL, Texas — Albert Collins joins Kistler Custom Rods Pro Staff Team, and plans to fish Kistler’s new 2016 Argon Rod in the Upcoming 2016 Bassmaster Classic.
The Texas angler qualified for the 2013 Bassmaster Classic at Grand Lake by winning the 2012 Toyota Tundra Bassmaster Weekend Series National Championship.
Achieving his longtime goal of winning the B.A.S.S. Nation Championship (BNC) last year earned Collins his second trip to the Classic this year at Grand Lake.
“After fishing with my Kistler Rods, my success has continued to increase along with the sensitivity, balance and power….I plan on putting the rods to work on Grand Lake in March at the Classic.” said Collins
The Kistler Team has continued to grow over the years and have developed a following in the elite ranks of the fishing world. The addition of Collins to the team will bring great talent and character to an already impressive list of top anglers from around the world.
“We are thrilled to have Albert as an addition to our great list Professional Anglers…we are looking forward to working with Albert to help Kistler Rods fine tune the Argon series of rods that will match the needs of East Texas anglers. It will be exciting to see Albert along with other Kistler Pros Alton Jones and Matt Herren all working to win the Bassmaster Classic this year” said owner Trey Kistler.
