Mustad Supports Competitive Student Anglers with Major Discount Program

Miami, FL – Competitive high school and collegiate fishing has grown exponentially over the past 5 years, making the sport one of the fastest growing programs in the nation. Because Mustad recognizes the crucial role these youth play as our next generation of anglers and the future ambassadors of our sport, Mustad is excited to launch the “Mustad Student Angler Program,” built specifically to offer both high school and collegiate clubs 50% off retail pricing on all Mustad products.

“The new Mustad Student Angler Program will enable these young competitive fishermen to gain access to significantly reduced pricing on all Mustad products. From the best-selling KVD series hooks to the newly released tungsten series, I believe this program will help support hundreds, even thousands of young anglers across the nations,” says Kevin VanDam, Major League Fishing Professional and Mustad Fishing Ambassador.

While the Mustad Student Angler Program helps student athletes significantly reduce costs, it also provides them with a competitive edge on the water, as the discount applies to all professional-tour-level Mustad products including Mustad KVD Elite Trebles—hooks responsible for propelling Kevin VanDam to the top of the leaderboards year after year—as well as the Grip Pin, the game-changing NEKO hook, in addition to the new Mustad Tungsten Weights launching soon.

“High school and collegiate competitive fishing programs have helped to develop a true growth system for professional fishing’s brightest young athletes. The professional experience these young athletes gain through competitive fishing significantly boosts their abilities to not only become successful in professional anglers, but serves them well in their personal professional careers,” says President Jordan Davis for Mustad Americas.
