Mo heads up American Tackle’s pro staff

Component manufacturer American Tackle Company has appointed the vastly experienced Captain Ancelmo ‘Mo’ Fernandez as its pro staff director.

Mo is native to Florida and growing up in the southern part of the state, he is well experienced in all areas of fishing both freshwater and saltwater.

He joins American Tackle with experience as a USCG licensed captain and fishing guide not to mention close to a decade of retail tackle experience after working as a lead in the fishing department of Bass Pro Shops.

Mo said: “The opportunity to work for American Tackle is a great move for me. I have always been around the fishing industry and when this came up, I couldn’t pass it up. My hope is to help the brand grow among professional anglers and those who are experts in the field, as well as become an asset to an already strong team.”

When not in the office, Mo enjoys spending time with his family and continues to be a part-time charter captain.

AT vice-president Darrin Heim added: “We are excited to have Mo join our team as we continue to grow the American Tackle brand and expand our marketing efforts. Through the difficulties of the pandemic this is still an exciting time for AT and we remain committed to staying strong and providing the best product available to our customers as well as anglers.”
