|Jeff Connella Joins Hi-Seas Pro Team|
For Immediate Release
COATESVILLE, PA (February 12, 2009) – HI-SEAS is proud to welcome Jeff Connella in their Pro Staff for 2009.
“I started using Grand Slam Braid® and HI-SEASFluorocarbon about six months ago and kept at it for the last six Elite Series events of 2008,” said Connella. “The lines turned out to be a perfect compliment to my fishing style and favorite techniques and they helped me finish in the money in five out of those six tournaments. You can bet I’m sold on HI-SEAS!”
“We’re pleased to have Jeff Connella as part of the HI-SEAS Pro Staff’” said Mike Shields, Vice President of Sales and Marketing just days before leaving for the Bassmaster Classic in Shreveport. “Jeff is a consummate professional who is capable of competing at the highest levels of the sport and we look forward to working with him to forward his career while benefiting from his experience and knowledge.”
“I’m really excited about using the new HI-SEAS superline they call Wildfireon the trail,” Jeff mentioned. “I’ve done extensive testing with it during the offseason and I can tell you that I am so pleased with its performance it will be my go-to line for all braid applications.”
Even as a youngster, Jeff Connella was an avid fisherman. He caught his first bass at age 4 and entered his first tournament at twelve. Today, this 40 year old engineer and native of Bentley, Louisiana is living his dream, fishing the Bassmaster Elite Series showcasing his talent against some of the top anglers in the nation.
Alongside the top bass anglers featured in Hi-Seas Pro Staff is Cliff Pace, who finished in second place in the Bassmaster Classic in 2008. Kim Bain-Moore, the top angler in the Ladies Bassmaster Series for 2008 and is the first woman to qualify to fish against the men in the Classic. Jeff is certainly in good company and, like his teammates he will be using the best fishing lines money can buy to help him make his move up the ladder of success!
