Wootton bags Shimano sponsorship deal

Top matchman Rob Wootton has signed a sponsorship deal which will see him play a major role in the development of Shimano.

The former Middy Tackle ace has relinquished all links with his old backers and will now have an input on future innovations.

Shimano  marketing manager Steve Cole commented: “Rob is an exceptionally talented angler who has proved that he is far more than just a commercial expert over the last few years with big victories on canals and rivers as well as appearances in big money finals such as Fish ‘O Mania.”
