Mustad Lands Mark Rose

Mustad, a global leader in fish hooks since 1877, has announced the addition of pro angler Mark Rose to its pro staff.

A veteran of the FLW circuit, Rose has honed his expertise in fishing river systems and offshore structure into an impressive career as one of the sport’s most consistently successful anglers. A six-time FLW winner and nine-time Forrest Wood Cup qualifier, Rose is also the only angler to qualify for all nine Toyota Texas Bass Classics.

“Most of the fish that I have brought to the scales in all six of my major event wins were caught on Mustad Hooks, so I'm very excited to be a part of this great company and join their Elite pro staff," Rose said.

“Mark’s track record speaks volumes about his angling skill and competitive drive; you can never count him out," said Mustad sales manager Steve Tagami. "The amount of respect that top level anglers have for Mark, both on and off the water, is tremendous. He is a great ambassador for the sport of fishing, and is an excellent person to represent Mustad.”

In 2016, Rose will be fishing the FLW Tour, FLW Invitationals, FLW Series, B.A.S.S. Northern and Southern Opens, and the popular Major League Fishing Summit Cup series.




Arkansas FLW Tour pro Mark Rose has amassed a lot of money fishing offshore in recent years, so last week's announcement that he'd switched from Lowrance to Garmin electronics was a significant development.

"I am not one who likes change," he said. "However, sometimes you have to make big decisions that are best for your career. I have to stay on the cutting edge in electronics and I want to work for good people. Therefore, Garmin is the best choice for me."

Garmin, of course, is happy that an offshore stick of Rose's caliber has opted to join the company's pro staff.

“The Garmin team has more than doubled in size over the last 2 years," said VP of worldwide sales Dan Bartel. "It’s an impressive group of anglers who, like Mark, have joined the Garmin team because they believe it will give them the competitive edge.

"Garmin is more committed than ever to being a top player in the freshwater fishing industry, and we’re so excited to have the opportunity to be a part of Mark’s success on the water.”
