BIRMINGHAM, Ala., August 26th, 2013 — Southern Sports Group, (SSG), a full service sports marketing agency located in Birmingham, Alabama announced this week that they will be representing top women’s pro angler, Pam Martin-Wells.
As native of Georgia, Ms. Martin-Wells has fished many bass trails through out the nation with top results spanning a twenty-five year career. She is a 20 time national champion, a 5 time “Angler of the Year”, and has been acknowledged across all the dedicated women’s tours as one of the top women pros and overall all-time leading money winner. Currently, Ms. Martin-Wells is the top angler leading the 2013 LBAA Women’s Pro Tour having captured two of the three tour stops on the 2013 tour and sits on top of the Angler of the Year points.
One highlight that Ms Martin-Wells may be best known for is being one of only two women to ever qualify to fish the Bassmaster Classic. In 2010, she stirred the fishing world up after being the first angler to reach a limit the first day of the Classic and finished the competition with a remarkable 23rd place overall.
“Excited about new opportunities”
“We are excited about the opportunity to work with and represent such a icon in the fishing industry – male or female – as Pam Martin-Wells. We feel that never before has there been so many opportunities in the outdoor sports market for women, especially the fishing and hunting categories. We know there are companies out there that are interested in extending their brand into the emerging women’s market and we know of no one better to represent such a category brand, as someone having been so successful for such a long time, such as Pam Martin-Wells,” said Southern Sports Group President, Sandy Thompson.
“Partnering with Southern Sports Group, a company that is already involved with fishing tours and charity fishing initiatives and being located in the south, seems like a great fit for me, “ stated Martin-Wells. “Also, it will allow me to focus on what I do best, …be out on the water – and let SSG handle all other opportunities.”
