Mike Harmon is one angler that never has to worry about hurrying home from a tournament to make good on a chore or promise he made to the wife just so he could go fishing.
The reason for that is simple: His wife is his team partner – whom he regularly counts on to help them secure a quality limit of fish and finish high in the money.
And you can best believe that Mike feels extremely fortunate that his team – and life partner Eula, is not just a pretty face, but also valuable asset to their cause. “Fishing with Eula has given me the best of both worlds” Mike noted. And I feel very fortunate that we share the same love and passion for the sport and for competition, as it makes the time we spend together on the water a very pleasant experience”.
But for 2012, Mike and Eula’s ability to remain focused as they compete on this year’s Thunder Valley Outdoors/Future Pro Tour, will be put to the test as they will be working closely with FPT sponsor Gamakatsu USA, and Go Pro Cameras, as the newest members of their promotional teams, and providing for each company, real-time on-the-water evaluations regarding the products they produce – from the perspective of the “everyday” angler.
“We are excited to have the opportunity to be part of this promotional team”, noted Mike and Eula. We have always used the Gamakatsu product , and know that using it has had a lot to do with our success on the tour. Go Pro Cameras will also be a significant source of help to us, as it will with anyone who wants to critique and improve upon their mechanics and execution on the water.
All anglers participating in the FPT season opener at Lake Berryessa on March 17th, will get the opportunity to evaluate Gamakatsu product as the first 50 teams will be eligible to participate in the Gamakatsu “Hook and Hold Em” Challenge, where the first 50 teams will receive Free Gamakatsu hooks , along with a Gamakatsu decal. The team that catches the Big fish of the event will be able to order their $50 worth of free hooks from Gamakatsu.
So let’s get ready for a great season opener and prepare to hook and “land” some good limits!
See you at Berryessa!
