Denali Rods would like to announce the newest member of the Denali Pro Staff, professional fisherman Michael Murphy.

“Denali is extremely excited to have Michael on our pro staff,” stated Denali Rods president Scott Estes. “Michael Murphy’s talents as a professional angler are obvious, but that is just the tip of the iceberg when you are talking about Michael’s credentials.  Michael has grown up in this industry on several fronts, and along the way has built a rock solid reputation for himself based on character and integrity, and we look forward to supporting him both now and far into the future.”

Murphy began his fishing career on the WalMart Bass Fishing League, and has been fishing the FLW Series since 2006, and on the FLW Tour since 2007.

“I am excited about the opportunity that Denali Rods and Scott Estes has made available for me!  They stand behind their products with their warranty, and I am amazed at how light, sensitive, and functional these rods are at such an affordable price.  With their signature wood foregrip, the rods fit real comfortable in your hands, increases sensitivity, and makes it look real classy!” stated Michael Murphy.

Denali Rods will also be releasing a Michael Murphy signature jerkbait and topwater rod in the very near future.

“Michael Murphy is Denali’s first official professional signing, but you can look for more over the next few weeks.” said Estes. “We will have a booth at all FLW Tour stops this year showcasing the Denali products, and supporting all Denali’s FLW anglers.”
