Bolton joins Picasso Lures pro team

Terry Bolton with 21-1 sits only 3 ounces out of the lead after day 1.

Picasso Lures announced FLW Tour angler Terry Bolton has signed on to join their pro team. "Terry Bolton is a very accomplished veteran angler having qualified for 11 Forrest Wood Cups in a relatively short time," stated Picasso Lures President and Founder Terry Monteleone. "His expertise and applications to the many spinnerbait techniques make Terry one of the premier spinnerbait fisherman on tour. Spinnerbaits were the very first product that Picasso introduced to the market back in 1995 and I look forward to collaborate with Terry on developing new and innovative products to bring to the market place." "I was attracted join Picasso Lures because of the high quality and attention to detail in every lure they make," said Bolton. "I'm pretty picky about my jigs and spinnerbaits and Picasso's quality is second to none. Most of their entire product line is hand made right here in the USA which allows them to keep a close watch on the entire manufacturing processes to assure that only the products that meet their strict QC get packaged and out to us anglers. That allows me to be confident that every lure coming right out of the package will perform correctly out on the water where money is at stake." Bolton will be joining Brent Ehrler, Fred Roumbanis, Adrian Avena, Casey Martin and Matt Newman on the Picasso pro staff.
