St. Croix Rod Renews Whitetails Unlimited Sponsorship
St. Croix fishing rods, makers of the Best Rods on Earth, has renewed their Whitetails Unlimited sponsorship, said WTU President Jeff Schinkten. "We are thrilled that St. Croix Rod is continuing their WTU sponsorship. Every time we feature St. Croix fishing rods at a WTU event the crowd loves it," said Schinkten. "It's no surprise, because while our members are passionate deer hunters, more than 80 percent of them also fish – and no one makes better rods than St. Croix."
St. Croix Rod is a family-owned and managed manufacturer of high-performance fishing rods headquartered in Park Falls, Wisconsin. Utilizing proprietary technologies St. Croix controls every step of the rod-making process – from conception and design to manufacturing and inspection – and is proud to approach seven decades of making rods in the USA. Founded in 1948 to manufacture jointed bamboo fishing poles for a Minneapolis hardware store chain, St. Croix Rod has grown to become the largest manufacturer of fishing rods in North America.
