Widely considered one of the most exciting personalities in kayak fishing, Chad Hoover makes even the calmest waters seem more enjoyable. This winter, Hoover has announced his new partnership with Bending Branches, bringing together a pioneer in kayak fishing with the leader in kayak fishing paddles.

Hoover is most widely recognized for his two nationally televised TV shows, “Knot Right Kayak Fishing” on NBC Sports and “Kayak Bassin’” on the World Fishing Network. Season 3 of Knot Right will air weekly at 1:30 pm EST for a total of 12 episodes during the fourth quarter of 2014. Kayak Bassin’ will start its 3rd all 13 episodes airing over the following 12 months.  

Hoover is also a YouTube sensation with his WebTV show Kayak Bassin’. With over 8,000 subscribers and 1 million views, Kayak Bassin’ has the largest kayak bass angling presence on YouTube. This past year, Hoover piloted the largest freshwater fishing tournament in America, the Kayak Bass Fishing OPEN. Bending Branches will continue to be a key sponsor at the OPEN in 2014, as the 2nd on March 15th.

“When the opportunity came up for me to have a new paddle sponsor, it wasn’t even a question - I wanted Bending Branches,” says Hoover. “I have carried Bending Branches paddles in my HOOK1 store for some time. On top of always flying off my shelves, they stand behind their product. They understand that the tool you use to move your kayak is much than that. It’s what makes your on water experience so enjoyable, you never want to leave.”  

“Chad Hoover’s dynamic personality, off-the-wall sense of humor, and passion and talent for bass fishing have made him a leader of the worldwide kayak fishing movement and one of the most recognizable and memorable TV show hosts”, says Ken Whiting, President of Heliconia Press, the producers of Kayak Bassin’.

Bending Branches has been a leader in paddles for over three decades, building high-quality kayak, canoe, and paddleboarding paddles. In 2011, Bending Branches became the first manufacturer to release an entire line-up of fishing-specific kayak paddles, opening a world of opportunity. Today, Bending Branches is the industry leader in kayak fishing paddles and continues to push the envelope of paddle innovation.

According to Andrew Stern, Marketing Specialist at Bending Branches, “Chad is one of the most talented and highly respected kayak anglers in the country. Now with Bending Branches, he has the paddles to complement his unique expertise.”

Hoover joins the Branches’ family of professional kayak anglers, with the likes of Drew Gregory, Dee Kaminski, Kayak Kevin Whitley, and so many more! Hoover’s addition makes the Branches team of anglers one of the most active and respected group of professional kayak anglers.

Hoover will be using the Kayak Angler Choice Award winning “Paddle of the Year”, the Angler Pro from Bending Branches.
