Jig manufacturer All-Terrain Tackle recently announced the re-signing of FLW Tour pro Adrian Avena for the 2013 tournament season. Avena is in the midst of his sophomore season on the FLW Tour after qualifying for the Forrest Wood Cup as a rookie. At the season-opening event on Lake Okeechobee, the Vineland, N.J., native took eighth place.

Avena said he’s proud to represent All-Terrain as they are a small company that listens to its pro staff. Avena works directly with owner Steve Hauge.

“These people are jig specialists; they have a wide variety from finesse jigs to football jigs to flipping jigs,” said Avena. “My favorite one is the 3/8-ounce finesse jig. I fish that just about all over the country, wherever I’m at. The 3/8-ounce finesse with a Smallie Beaver is my go-to set-up.”

“Adrian was with us this past year and has had a very positive influence on our brand through both his fishing and promotional abilities,” said Hauge. “We could not be happier to have him on board again this year and look forward to him having a great year.”

Avena joins renowned football jig fisherman Jim Moynagh on the All-Terrain pro staff.
