Gary Henderson started fishing early on in his life. At the age of 7, he purchased his first set up and hooked his first ever fish not long after. Gary has gained a good reputation, through hard work and determination over the past 4-5 years, which have resulted in Pike weighing in at over 32lb and Perch over 4lb. However, it isn’t the list of big fish that Gary has caught that has led to his signing to angling brands Abu and Berkley. “Gary has huge potential that will greatly benefit both Abu Garcia & Berkley,” said Lucy Gourley, UK Marketing Executive, Pure Fishing. “He is very skilled, proactive and has an abundance of passion for the sport, which shows while he’s fishing and off the water. We are very excited to have him on board and have him work alongside our other ProTeam members. “ Gary will also be working with the brand teams, to provide valuable knowledge, product testing and evaluation for future UK products to be launched from Abu Garcia and Berkley.
“As we continue our focus in the Predator market, it is vital that we have a great team of experienced, passionate anglers that can help us grow in this category,” Said John Henderson, Sales & Marketing Director – UK & Ireland, Pure Fishing. “ Adding Gary to the existing team will be integral in helping us to strengthen this category further” ‘I am delighted to be joining the fantastic predator team at Abu Garcia & Berkley,” said Gary. “To be associated and working with some of the best brands in the world is a real honour. I, like many other anglers have always been a huge fan of the Abu reels and regard them as the finest predator reels available, and know when paired with the great selection of Berkley products , I will see my fishing elevated to the next level…it is a dream come true to be working with them.” First stop for Gary in his new role is the Glasgow Angling Centre Open Weekend on the 5th & 6th March 2016.
