Jock Kettles, Captain of the Spring Loch Team which is going to Lough Sheelin this year, recently met with Michael Wilson of Fishers and is now able to announce that Fishers will sponsor the loch teams for the next five years.

Michael provided support to the teams last year and is now stepping up that support alongside his plans to expand Fishers. Fishers is a dedicated tackle store situated in John Street Precinct, Penicuik and is owned and run by Michael Wilson. Despite being a new company established in 2009 Fishers has experienced rapid growth with plans for expansion in 2012.

Fishers retail Game, Sea, Coarse & Predator tackle, fly tying equipment, clothing and baits most of which are available either in store or online at
www.fishersdirect.com

Michael stocks huge brands such as Hardy, Greys, Airflo, Vision, Wychwood, Rio, Snowbee, Riverge, Veniard, Flybox, Kamasan, Fulling Mill, Caledonia, Masterline, Cortland, Loon, Anvil, Drennan, Redington, Shimano, Lee Wulff, Fishpond and many more.

Michael explained that the Fishers' reputation for first class service and competitive pricing has come straight from the anglers who use us and not from bold advertising claims, leading to the decision to give something back to the sport with Fishers being a proud sponsor of the Scottish International fly fishing squad 2012.

Jock described the sponsorship as fantastic news for the teams. The cost of the internationals increases each year and when this sponsorship is put alongside all the other support that is provided for the teams and the fundraisers they run each year it means that representing Scotland at the loch internationals is affordable for all.
