Ehrler looks forward to fishing with Gamakatsu hooks, "I am very excited about the opportunity to work with Gamakatsu. I have always put them on a pedestal in the fishing industry, and to be associated with their brand name and premier products is truly a privilege. I already use a lot of their hooks and can't wait to fish with some of the new models. I am ready to revamp my hook boxes, both worm hooks and trebles. In fact, I have several Plano boxes that I have labeled that are ready to be filled. I'm anxious to start the 2013 season with a fresh box of premier Gamakatsu hooks."
