inona, MO (February 6, 2010) —Pro angler and fishing instructor Mike DelVisco today inked a sponsorship deal with Secret Weapon Lures® for the 2010 season. DelVisco’s primary contribution to the Missouri tackle manufacturer will be helping anglers build confidence in Secret Weapon’s unconventional fishing lures and terminal tackle.

“I am very excited about my new partnership with Secret Weapon,” he said. “Their advanced designs dramatically improve performance, and their quality is second to none. That makes my job of promoting their products relatively easy. I look forward to helping anglers understand Secret Weapon’s clear advantages over first-generation baits.”

Secret Weapon president Joe Haubenreich expressed great satisfaction with DelVisco’s addition to the SWL Pro Angler roster. “Mike’s expertise as an angler is surpassed only by his ability as a fishing coach and promoter. With the growing popularity of drop shot fishing, I am especially pleased that we have someone with his credibility instructing anglers on our Recoil Rig™.”

DelVisco believes hooking other anglers on this new technology won’t pose much of a challenge. “In my opinion, Recoil Rigs revolutionize the way we approach drop shot fishing,” he said. “Not only do they enhance vertical presentations, but these rigs make plastic baits come alive wherever we cast them. It’s the most effective technique for bedding bass ever conceived.”

Their spinnerbaits and buzzbaits, made in America’s heartland, were conceived on the clear rivers of Missouri and have been honed and tournament-tested on lakes and rivers around the world.
