Martin-Wells started the 2007 season off in high fashion after placing second at the season opening event at Lake Amistad in Del Rio, Texas. and followed it up with her historic victory at the 2007 Women’s Bassmaster Tour Championship at Alabama’s Lake Mitchell.
“I had been with the same rod company for 20 years prior to joining Powell,” Martin-Wells said from her home in Bainbridge, GA. “From the moment I picked up my first Powell Rod, I knew that I had found a tool that was going to help take my fishing to the next level.” She said that quality construction was the key. “I have never felt a rod that was so light and sensitive, it helps me feel bites I know I was missing before,” she continued. “Besides, getting to know Keith Bryan [President of Powell Rods] and his staff has been great; I couldn’t be happier.”
Bryan said that having someone of Pam’s caliber is a tremendous asset to the company. “Pam is a fantastic angler, and a terrific person,” he continued. “Her skills as an angler along with her long history of success in the sport are elements we look for in our team members, we are proud to welcome her to the family.”
