Agoura Hills, Calif - Reigning FLW Tour Angler of the Year Andy Morgan has aligned with iRod Fishing for the 2014 season. Morgan will be using iRod fishing rods for the 2014 season and will be designing several signature series rods. Morgan's signature series rods include a light flippin'/junk fishing rod that is in the production stage now, and a heavy flippin' stick which is already on the market. Morgan knew what he was in for from the first time he held an iRod. "The very first time I held an iRod I knew they were going to be good. In fact, the very first day I had them I used them to fish in the Forrest Wood Cup on the Red River last year. After only a few tournaments I've already used the iRods in a wide range of applications. I used my signature series heavy flippin' stick at Lake Okeechobee, my prototype light flippin'/junk rod to make precise casts around docks, and believe it or not a spinning rod on Lake Hartwell. I am even more impressed by the quality and performance in these rods after using them in such a wide range of applications." Owner of iRod, Matt Newman is thrilled with the new addition to his team. Newman had this to say about Morgan, "I've always been an Andy Morgan fan. He is at the very top of the bass fishing world, and his current number one status in the world rankings confirms that. Andy's skills and knowledge of fishing will be a huge asset to iRod moving forward." So far this season Morgan has finished in second place on Lake Hartwell last week and 13th place on Lake Okeechobee in early February. Morgan continues his FLW Tour Angler of the Year title defense at Lake Sam Rayburn, Texas March 27th to 30th before heading to Beaver Lake in early April.
