(Feb 15, 2015 - San Antonio, TX) The Association of College Fishing and the Cabela's Collegiate Bass Fishing Series are proud to announce Gill North America rainwear as the newest sponsor of the 2015 Cabela's Collegiate Bass Fishing Series.
Focused on using fabrics designed for a marine environment, Gill prides itself in manufacturing rain wear that will withstand the tests of not only minor rain, but viscous ocean storms as well. Gill adds the "Gill Guarantee" to each of their products, from base layers to outerwear, so you can trust Gill's products to serve you in the harshest environments.
"We have had very good success with our collegiate program in sailing and are excited to launch our support of college fishing anglers through the Cabela's Collegiate Bass Fishing Series and the Association of Collegiate Anglers.  Our gear is a great fit for college anglers and will keep them dry and comfortable in any condition they might encounter," said David Pritchard, president of Gill North America.
"We are extremely excited to have Gill on board for the 2015 Cabela's Collegiate Bass Fishing Series," said President of CarecoTV and Association of Collegiate Anglers Director. "As we've seen in past tournaments, the weather is just as unpredictable as the fishing sometimes and having Gill involved will give these collegiate anglers some assurance on the water with the gear they are wearing."
Collegiate anglers will be able to get their arms and legs into their very own set of Gill rainwear through their purchase program specifically set for these anglers.
