Two Trusted Names offer Anglers the Very Best in Fishing Tackle

Bass Pro Shops and Browning Sign Agreement

Springfield, Missouri – Bass Pro Shops and Browning. They’re two names you know you can trust. You grew up with the pride and tradition of owning Browning products and you’ve come to expect the quality, service and selection that are hallmarks of Bass Pro Shops. Now anglers can get the absolute best in Browning fishing tackle from one place – Bass Pro Shops.

           

Bass Pro Shops signed a trademark license agreement with Browning for the exclusive marketing rights to Browning fishing products in the United States and Canada. Bass Pro Shops, including their stores, catalog and internet site, along with American Rod & Gun (Bass Pro Shops wholesale division) and their nationwide dealer network, will be the only retailers in America to carry the Browning fishing line. The Browning rods, reels and combos are featured in the Bass Pro Shops 2004 Master Catalog and will carry forward in the 2005 catalogs.

           

Browning, long known for high-performance sporting arms, actually began in 1878 when John M. Browning began work on his first single shot rifle that he patented in 1879. A prolific and advanced series of firearms designs followed, earning the inventor 127 more patents for firearms he sold to the famous gunmakers of the day as well as for designs he brought to market under the Browning brand.

           

With their corporate headquarters in Mountain Green, Utah, 40 miles northeast of Salt Lake City, Browning expanded its product lines during the last 125 years to include gun safes, knives, apparel, footwear, archery and fishing.

           

Bass Pro Shops, America’s most popular outdoors store and international catalog and internet retailer, has their corporate headquarters located in Springfield, Missouri which is also home to the ‘granddaddy’ of all outdoor stores – the 300,000 square-foot Bass Pro Shops Outdoor World. At the end of 2004 they will have 25 retail locations across the United States attracting more than 60 million visitors a year.

           

“We are extremely proud and excited to be able to offer our customers the Browning line of fishing tackle,” said Ed Dinkins, vice-president of merchandising for Bass Pro Shops. “It is our goal to supply today’s anglers with the very best in quality and we believe Browning fits the bill.”

           

Bass Pro Shops, with Browning, has designed a totally new line of fishing tackle with state-of-the-art models which will offer anglers exceptional casting distance and accuracy, second-to-none sensitivity and extreme longevity. All are crafted with superior workmanship right down to the finishing details in order to merit the Browning Buck Mark insignia.
