Taylor Man’s Custom Lures Bass Pro Bradley Roy

SwingBlade and SnaggleProof Jig Keys to Pro Angler Bradley Roy’s Elite Strategy |

Taylor Man's Custom Lures Professional Angler Bradley RoyBradley Roy of Lancaster, Kentucky has locked in the top spot on Taylor Man’s Custom Lures Pro Angler roster for 2013. Roy, now in his fourth year of Elite Series competition, was the youngest angler ever to have competed at the Elite level, claiming the Bassmaster Elite Series Rookie of the Year title in 2010.

Roy said, “I’ve relied on Taylor Man’s Custom Lures for years, so I’m tickled to work with them again this season.  They are always looking for new ways to help fishermen catch more fish on jigs and wire baits.”

Roy advised Taylor Man’s on its 2013 wire bait and jig prey-inspired color patterns. He said, “Each aspect of Taylor Man’s jigs and wire baits is first class. The nature-inspired color patterns we’re developing really draw more strikes. From wide gap Gamakatsu hooks to wire-wrapped silicone collars and bio-flex and living rubber skirts—everything about these lures is perfect.”

Taylor Man’s Custom Lures president James Huskey said he sponsors Roy not only for his fishing skills but also for his character and honesty. “Bradley consistently produces on the water and tournament anglers pay attention to what he’s using. He absolutely refuses to use a jig or wire bait if it’s not the right tool for the job, and we’re honored that he has used Taylor Man’s since his first-ever Elite Series event.”
