Professional angler Nicole Jacobs Stelmach fishes for Tender Corp.
Tender Corp., a family of brands that seeks to help enthusiasts, professionals and families enjoy the outdoors in every condition, last week announced its support of professional angler Nicole Jacobs Stelmach for the 2018 tournament fishing season. Stelmach, who has competed as a co-angler for multiple seasons on the Fishing League Worldwide Tour, will focus this year on FLW Bass Fishing League Great Lakes Series events.
“Nicole’s unbridled passion for fishing and the outdoors is infectious,” Frank Meyer, chief marketing officer at the Litteton, N.H.-based Tender Corp., said. “Her success as a professional angler, as well as her emphasis on safety and focus on getting outdoors with her family mean she’s a natural fit for the Tender Corp. family.”
With a degree in kinesiology and experience as a first responder, Stelmach also brings a wealth of first aid know-how to the partnership.
“As a mother, wife and professional angler, I couldn’t be more excited to work with Tender Corp. this season,” Stelmach said. “Being prepared with the right tools and knowledge gives me the confidence to safely and comfortably pursue my goals on the water and at home with my family.”
As part of the sponsorship, Stelmach will keep the following in her tackle box:
- Natrapel Tick and Insect Repellent – Thanks to its CDC-recommended 20% Picaridin formula, Natrapel provides 12 hours of protection from mosquitos, ticks and other biting insects commonly encountered while fishing. “On top of how well it works, I love that it’s safe on gear and won’t destroy my waterproof rain shells,” Stelmach said;
- Adventure Medical Kits – Adventure Medical Kits provide the necessary supplies and know-how to treat both common and severe injuries in the field. “Boating accidents happen,” Stelmach said. “Whether it’s a fish hook injury or worse, a lot can go wrong out there and Adventure Medical Kits’ compact, waterproof kits give me confidence on the water.”;
- After Bite Insect Bite Treatment – For more than 30 years, After Bite’s pharmacist-preferred formula has provided instant itch relief for bites from mosquitoes, fleas, ticks and other common insects. “Some people I fish with always forget to apply repellent before heading out on the water,” Stelmach said. “That’s why I always have After Bite in my kit.”; and
- Survive Outdoors Longer – “The weather can change in a heartbeat,” Stelmach said. “On the water, we’re exposed to the full force of nature.” From emergency blankets and bivvies to multi-function survival tools and kits, Survive Outdoors Longer products can make the difference in a worst-case scenario.
Founded in 1973 in the heart of New Hampshire’s iconic White Mountains, Tender Corp. brands have always operated with a simple, unified goal: To help people enjoy the outdoors, no matter the condition. With products from the organized-by-injury Adventure Medical Kits to After Bite insect sting treatment, Tender continues to make good on that promise.
