1 Minute Read

Heliconia, producers of The Kayak Fishing Show with Jim Sammons, announces its new partnership with Release Reels, quality reels proudly made in, Virginia, always with a lifetime warranty.

Kayak Fishing Show - Release Reels“As soon as I tried out my first reel from Release Reels, it became my go-to, and has been for the last two seasons of filming,” says Sammons. “It also helps that each reel is backed by an excellent team with an obvious passion for the product and who offer great customer service.” Sammons adds, “The reels are both powerful yet surprisingly light weight, and having a reel you can trust when fighting a 200lb marlin makes all the difference.”

Sammons is most widely recognized for his two nationally televised TV shows, The Kayak Fishing Show on the World Fishing Network and The Extreme Kayak Fishing Challenge on NBC Sports. Both series follow Jim as he travels the world with his kayak, while on the hunt for the biggest and most challenging game fish. Season 6 of The Kayak Fishing Show and Season 4 of The Extreme Kayak Fishing Challenge will begin airing in April 2015.

Sammons’ is also a YouTube sensation with his WebTV channel, Kayak Fishing Tales. With over 24,000 subscribers and 14 million views, Kayak Fishing Tales has the largest kayak angling presence on YouTube.

According to Release Reels founder and President, Wes Seigler, “Jim originally approached us about simply using a few reels during the filming of the show and we could not be happier with how he has represented us this far. We are really excited that we are now able to be a formal part of the program.”

Release Reels have created among the lightest, strongest and most competitively priced fishing reels in the industry—each with a lifetime warranty. The Release Reels’ design process has been developed over several years by adapting the latest technology, machine capabilities and materials—coupled with input from the finest anglers and commercial captains in the Mid-Atlantic.
