I am happy to announce that Okuma Fishing is supporting the USCA in 2010. Okuma recognizes the purchasing power of the catfishing demographic, and will be pushing hard in 2010 to slowly introduce their product line into our sport. They hope over time to form a strong relationship within the sport of catfishing, and realize that the Members of the USCA are what is needed for product awareness in our sport. They will also have some new stuff that has never been seen. Although the push in early 2010 is the USCA Membership Drive, and I hope that you consider supporting the USCA, I realize that some do not have the financial means to do so. All Okuma Promotions Will be open to All Members of the USCA, regardless of support status. Some promotions will reach $500 price points on fishing reels, and include Okuma shirts and possibly other items. When you get a chance, welcome Okuma to the USCA.
