"SteelShad Fishing Company Announces Sponsorship Agreement with Jay Yelas, the 2002 Bassmaster Classic Champion, 2003 BASS Angler of the Year, 2002 and 2007 FLW Angler of the Year."

EAST DORSET, Vt., Sept. 28, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- Earlier this year, Mr. Stephen Price, CEO of SteelShad Fishing Company, was marching around the Bassmaster Classic Expo when he spotted Mr. Jay Yelas signing autographs right next to Mr. Bill Dance at the Mercury Motor Exhibit.  Stephen and Jay struck up a conversation talking about faith, fishing and fishing lures and a friendship was born.  Today, SteelShad Fishing Company is proud to announce that it joins a leading group of industry companies to sponsor Jay Yelas for the upcoming year.

Stephen Price commented, "Jay is just one of those guys that you are drawn too.  His passion for fishing, family and faith shows through every time you speak to him and he has a deep knowledge and understanding of the sport fishing industry and its major players.  We are honored to join his other sponsors in supporting him on the FLW tournament trail!"

Jay Yelas responded, "Stephen and his partners at SteelShad are innovators, and they are expanding the SteelShad product line.  I wanted to be a part of it.  The SteelShad is a fun lure because so many species of gamefish will eat it!  It's a very versatile lure and a must-have for my tackle box."

The SteelShad Fishing Company is proud to be a new sponsor of Jay Yelas.  Last year, 3 best friends partnered together with Captain Steve Niemoeller to launch the SteelShad Fishing Company nationwide.  SteelShad makes fishing simple, easy and fun. 

The SteelShad fishing lure was designed and perfected by Anglers and Guides whom are on the water every day.  Captain Steve is a full-time fishing guide in Florida and he says, "Once you catch your first trophy fish on a SteelShad, it's hard to go back to other baits."  Together, we are bringing innovative SteelShad fishing lures, apparel and gear to Anglers nationwide. 

Anglers love SteelShad because "Fish Bite It!"
