For the last 4 years, Colville, Washington multi-tournament angler winner and seminar speaker Nik Autrey has been a valuable member of our pro staff team. As one of the hot “young guns” of tournament Bass fishing, 19 year old Nik has built himself a rock solid reputation through many strong tournament finishes. Fearlessly versatile in his approach, he holds the distinction of being a 4 time Washington state champion, as well as amassing several “Angler of the Year” awards from 3 different Bass clubs. Hot off the heels of his already impressive accomplishments, Nik and his partner blew past the field last October in Alabama, taking home the prestigious B.A.S.S. Junior World Championship title.
Nik has truly demonstrated he is able to dominate on any body of water across the country. He has been a dedicated student of Bass fishing since a young age, and is working hard to continue his meteoric rise to the top of the sport. For 2013 he will be focusing his efforts on competing in the Northwest Bass Challenge Circuit, as well as the Inland Empire Bass Club tournament series. By next year, Nik plans to go full bore working towards his ultimate goal of fishing the B.A.S.S. and FLW tournament trails.
When competing on the tournament trail, your gear must function at the highest level while retaining extreme durability. Knowing this, Nik chooses to use custom rods built using our RainShadow™ blanks and ALPS™ components. He attributes much of his success to gear that allows him to perform at his absolute best, while being able to withstand the absolute worst. We look forward to our continued partnership with Nik well into the future!
