"The Next Bite" (TNB), a well-recognized leader in angling education and entertainment media, has joined the National Professional Anglers Association (NPAA) as a Gold Supporting Partner. Gary Parsons (NPAA#24) and Keith Kavajecz (NPAA#81), two of TNB's principle owners, have been long time members of the NPAA and both have donated time in the past to serve on the NPAA Board of Directors.
"Becoming a Supporting Partner of the NPAA was a very easy decision for us to make as a business that is dedicated to growing the sport of fishing," said Parsons.
"Our entire management team has been extremely impressed with the momentum the NPAA has gained over the past year or so through their use of social networking and the use of their e-mail/internet based communications."
The Next Bite plans to leverage the exposure they can garner for their business through the use of the NPAA website, and social media platforms to increase their overall presence in the industry and to the anglers that look to TNB for cutting edge angling tactics.
"The NPAA provides TNB with an opportunity to reach out to the key people in the fishing world that goes beyond what we would be able to do on our own. I look at this new partnership as a way for us to grow our business, and a way for us to help the NPAA grow the sport we love," said Parsons.
