Dobyns Rods Announces Freshwater Conservation Series to support Conservation Organizations  
February 24th 2008 3:53pm
Press Release

Greenville, SC- Gary Dobyns, well known West Coast professional angler and owner of Dobyns Rods announced today that a new freshwater series of conservation rods will be introduced this year to help support the efforts of conservation minded organizations like the BASS Federation Nation. The Freshwater Conservation Rod program was introduced to the State Conservation Directors today during the BASS Federation Nation national conservation workshop held in conjunction with the 2008 Bassmaster Classic.

 “Conservation and preserving our fisheries are something that we talk about all the time and so often nothing gets done”, says Gary Dobyns.  “ That is why I wanted to align the Dobyns Rod Company with Conservation organizations and support their efforts. Now a portion of rod sales will benefit conservation efforts nationwide”.

The conservation rod program was developed in cooperation with Dobyns Pro Staffer Tim Cook, State Conservation Director for the Texas BASS Federation Nation and the 2006 BASS Federation Nation Conservation Director of the Year. “Gary Dobyns’ commitment to supporting angling conservation efforts sets a remarkable example for the entire sport fishing industry”, says Cook.  “$25 from the sale of every conservation series rod will go to supporting Dobyns conservation partners. In many cases, this will provide state conservation directors with a budget to offset expenses where there may have been no budget before.”

The Program will involve Dobyns’ two best selling rods and will retail for $169.99.
