Stelmach will utilize products from leading Tender Corporation brands Natrapel®, After Bite®, Adventure® Medical Kits and Survive Outdoors Longer® in 2018
LITTLETON, N.H. (March 5, 2018) — Tender Corporation, a family of brands that seeks to help enthusiasts, professionals and families enjoy the outdoors in every condition, is excited to announce its support of professional angler Nicole Jacobs Stelmach for the 2018 tournament fishing season. Stelmach, who has competed as a co-angler for multiple seasons on the Fishing League Worldwide (FLW) Tour, will focus this year on FLW Bass Fishing League Great Lakes Series events.
“Nicole’s unbridled passion for fishing and the outdoors is infectious,” says Frank Meyer, chief marketing officer at Tender Corporation. “Her success as a professional angler, as well as her emphasis on safety and focus on getting outdoors with her family mean she’s a natural fit for the Tender Corporation family.”
With a degree in kinesiology and experience as a first responder, Stelmach also brings a wealth of first aid know-how to the partnership.
“As a mother, wife and professional angler, I couldn’t be more excited to work with Tender Corporation this season,” says Stelmach. “Being prepared with the right tools and knowledge gives me the confidence to safely and comfortably pursue my goals on the water and at home with my family.”
On top of her competitive fishing schedule, Stelmach devotes much of her free time to encouraging more women and families to get outside and fish together through volunteerism, public speaking and her social media channels.
Natrapel® Tick and Insect Repellent — Thanks to its CDC-recommended 20% Picaridin formula, Natrapel provides 12 hours of protection from mosquitos, ticks and other biting insects commonly encountered while fishing. “On top of how well it works, I love that it’s safe on gear and won’t destroy my waterproof rain shells,” says Stelmach, pointing out one of the key benefits of Natrapel’s formula. www.natrapel.com
Adventure Medical Kits® — The leading name in outdoor first aid, Adventure Medical Kits provide the necessary supplies and know-how to treat both common and severe injuries in the field. “Boating accidents happen,” says Stelmach. “Whether it’s a fish hook injury or worse, a lot can go wrong out there and Adventure Medical Kits’ compact, waterproof kits give me confidence on the water.” www.adventuremedicalkits.com
After Bite® Insect Bite Treatment — For over 30 years, After Bite's pharmacist-preferred formula has provided instant itch relief for bites from mosquitoes, fleas, ticks and other common insects. "Some people I fish with always forget to apply repellent before heading out on the water,” Stelmach says. “That’s why I always have After Bite in my kit.” www.afterbite.com
Survive Outdoors Longer® — “The weather can change in a heartbeat,” Stelmach says. “On the water, we’re exposed to the full force of nature.” From emergency blankets and bivvies to multi-function survival tools and kits, Survive Outdoors Longer products can make the difference in a worst-case scenario. www.surviveoutdoorslonger.com
