BROKEN ARROW, OK – Falcon Rods has signed on as Title Sponsor for Oklahoma native Jason Christie, perhaps the fastest rising competitor on the national bass tournament scene.With a busy 2014 schedule of national tournaments, Christie will compete from the Falcon Rods bass boat. The Falcon Rods brand logo will have premium visibility at all of Christie’s tournament weigh-ins and public appearances, on his websites and on his vehicle and vessel wraps. Christie will continue to work closely with Falcon on its Jason Christie Signature Rod Series.“We are all-in with Jason,” said Falcon Founder John Beckwith. “We have known and supported Jason from the beginning of his career. He is a winner, which he has proved over and over with his numerous victories and top ten finishes. Jason is on a roll and Falcon Rods is excited about the rewards this new partnership will bring.”“Falcon Rods is a great fit for me,” said Christie, of Park Hill, Oklahoma. “I’ve been fishing with Falcon since my first year as a pro. That’s thousands and thousands of casts. And I have never broken a Falcon. Never. I fish Falcon and that’s that.”Since 2011 Christie has won seven events including four majors—one Bassmaster Elite tournament and three Walmart-FLW tour events. Christie qualified for the Bassmaster Elite Series and in 15 Bassmaster events he placed first in three and in the top ten in four more.In 2012 Christie won two Bassmaster Opens, which put him into the field for the 2013 Bassmaster Classic on Oklahoma’s Grand Lake where he finished seventh. Five times Christie qualified for the Forest Wood Cup. Recently Falcon Rods added the new made-in-America Jason Christie Signature Series to its rod line, which also includes Cara T7, Cara Reaction, Cara Micro, Cara Peacock Bass, Cara Mike McClelland, BuCoo, BuCoo Micro, LowRider, LowRider Salt, Coastal XG, HD and Original. There are three spinning reel models in the Falcon product lineup -- Back Country, Volt, and Moxie.For 2014 Christie said he would be fishing in as many top-tier tournaments as possible including the Bassmaster Elite Series, the Walmart-FLW Tour, and the Toyota Texas Bass Classic on Lake Fork. “I have a really full schedule,” Christie said.“That’s the way I like to work. I fish a lot of events and I am looking forward to showing and telling other anglers how much I trust the rods made by Falcon. The quality is excellent.”

Overview: Pro Web Live offers a non-traditional, cutting-edge concept coming soon to living rooms and banquet halls around the world. PWL combines a seminar, TV show, social media platform, and an online retailer into one compact interactive production that is sure to change the way you look at professional outdoor seminars forever…and it’s all live!
The all-star lineup includes Bassfan’s current #1 World Ranked Angler and four-time tour winner Jason Christie, Host of “One More Cast” and nine-time BASS winner Shaw Grigsby, 2006 FWC Champion and eight-time FLW winner Brent Ehrler, 2011 BASS Rookie of the Year and All-Star Event Champion Ott DeFoe, 2009 TTBC World Champion and five-time FLW winner Dave Lefebre, Host of Jimmy Houston Outdoors and Chevy Pro Jimmy Houston, six-time BASS Tour winner and 12-time Classic Qualifier Edwin Evers, 2013 Classic runner-up and two-time BASS tour winner Brandon Palaniuk, 2013 BASS Angler of the Year and six-time BASS tour winner Aaron Martens, and six-time FLW winner and Wal-Mart pro Mark Rose.Pro Web Live asked fishing fans from across the country a couple of admittedly leading, but telling questions…Would you rather put gas in your truck, fight downtown traffic all the way to the outdoor expo, pay to park, walk a half mile while being solicited twice, stand in line, buy a ticket, pay for a flat drink and a stale snack, fight the large crowds, sit behind the tall loud guy on a little rock-hard fold up chair in the back of an over-sized room, all to listen to someone you’ve never heard of before talk about how to tie a palomar knot…only to return to your dark home late on a work night, while finally spreading the flu virus to your entire family?…Or, would you rather come home from work, eat dinner with your family, invite a few friends over, flip open your laptop and enjoy interacting with your favorite fishing pro as he educates you in your own setting?“Basically, this deal is a win-win for everyone”, says Jason Christie, who finished the 2013 season as the #1 angler in the World. “Like everyone else in the PWL speaker line up, I am a very busy person. I’m traveling all the time, not just to tournaments, but also to various other appearances. What Pro Web Live is doing not only makes perfect sense to the fans, but also assists someone in my situation, and I’m excited about the possibilities of engaging with more of those fishing fans because of it.”Kellogg’s FLW Tour pro Dave Lefebre adds, “The on-line presence of the fishing industry has never been greater, and it’s no coincidence that on-line shopping is more popular now than ever before. Pro Web Live basically combines a seminar, social media, “how to” videos, and an on-line retailer into a single jam-packed, live television-like event. PWL seminar attendees get the best possible view of the newest lures, techniques, and products being discussed, along with real time links to on-line retailers where they can literally buy Brandon Palaniuk’s favorite winning Arashi crankbait as he’s talking about it. Can you imagine watching “One More Cast” and being able to ask Shaw a question as he’s talking? No other single medium (that I’m aware of) can claim these same unique and convenient opportunities. This is definitely the future!”
Pro Web Live events will include numerous guest interactive features, Power Point presentations, videos, commercials, multiple prize giveaways, special guest appearances, Q&A, and much, much more. Events will begin at 8:00 pm (Eastern Standard Time) and will require the purchase of virtual event ticket. Tickets cost $49.99 each.
