Martens left Enigma to join the Loomis Pro Staff team.
South Bend - On April 18th, 2020, many avid fly tiers will come together to tie as many flies as they can for the great cause, Reel Recovery.
All the flies tied from the Tie-A-Thon 14 will be distributed to Reel Recovery, an organization that helps the emotional rehabilitation of men dealing with cancer.
Taking its ice-fishing rod and reel line-up another step, Shimano follows the wave it made in 2018 to continue with its ‘next level’ ice rods now offered in the new Sedona Ice-Fishing combos.

KNOXVILLE, Tenn. — Ott DeFoe came into Friday’s opening round of the GEICO Bassmaster Classic presented by DICK’S Sporting Goods with two patterns in mind that he thought would work on the Tennessee River.
Only one of them did — and even then, just barely.
But it worked well enough to give him the lead at the Super Bowl of Professional Bass Fishing.
DeFoe caught only eight keeper bass on the day, but his best five weighed 20 pounds and gave him an early cushion over Arizona pros Roy Hawk, who was second with 17-11, and Clifford Pirch, who was third with 16-11.
“I got five good bites all day, and I landed them,” said DeFoe, a Knoxville resident who was considered by many to be the odds-on favorite coming into the event. “Honestly, it felt like a very tough day.”
DeFoe’s two-pattern strategy included one tactic he believed would produce heavier bass and another he thought would be a good “limit filler.” The limit-filling pattern didn’t work at all.
