FLW Series Champion Mike Goodwin Joins Powell Rods Pro Staff

Novato, Calif. – The Powell Rods pro staff reads like a who’s who of bass fishing. Powell has assembled a pro staff team that contains some of the world’s best known National and Regional professional anglers; that list just became one better with the addition of Mike Goodwin of Lake Havasu City, Ariz.

Goodwin has long been one of the most decorated anglers in the Southwest, and in February of 2007, the trophy wall became even more complete with his victory in the inaugural FLW Series National Guard Western Division opener at Lake Havasu.

Goodwin said the real pleasure of being a part of the Powell Rods Pro Staff is his relation ship with Powell’s President, Keith Bryan. “I met Keith before I ever used one of his rods; in fact, I was on staff with another rod company,” Goodwin said. “His personal approach and passion for his business were evident from the first moment I met him.”

When Goodwin used a Powell Max bass rod some time later, he decided to make the relationship official. “I have been fishing tournaments since 1980, and have used the best rods on the market the whole time,” Goodwin said. “But, since I picked up a Powell on my brother’s boat, I knew what I had been missing, so I joined the team.”

Bryan said that his respect for Goodwin both on and off the water made bringing him aboard an easy decision. “Mike is a great person, he loves this sport, and his results show that,” reported Bryan. “Besides his on the water success, he is a genuine person whom any company could appreciate partnering with; we are pleased to welcome him into the Powell Rods family.
