MLF Bass Pro Tour competitor Jeff Sprague has joined the Elite Anglr Athlete program to provide his expertise on clothing and help promote the apparel company’s products.
The Texas pro helped spearhead a clothing line for one of his sponsors, which gave him some insight on choosing a fishing apparel company offering quality products.
“Those guys (Elite Anglr co-owners Al McCulloch and Donny Wilson) have a great concept and a great clothing line and outdoor weather gear,” Sprague said. “That is what really attracted me was the outdoor weather gear. It is priced right and is a cool brand.”
Prior to joining the Bass Pro Tour, Sprague competed for five years on the FLW Tour. He qualified for five FLW Cups and recorded 15 top-10 finishes in FLW events.
McCulloch said Sprague was chosen to be part of the Elite Anglr family for several reasons.
“Jeff is a veteran and former police officer and we admire and want those types of individuals representing the Elite Anglr lifestyle,” McCulloch said. “Life is about family and giving back and no one does it better than Jeff. He has worked hard to become a professional angler and that passion is also found in his family life. I remember there was a great shot of Jeff and his son last year on the tour when they were on the deck of his boat for morning prayer before the launch. The picture captured everything you need to know about Jeff.”
