St. Croix and Anglers Inn International Continue Partnership

COEUR D’ ALENE, Idaho (May 10, 2021) – Anglers Inn International, with popular 5-star fishing destinations in Mexico and Brazil, announces the renewed partnership with St. Croix Rods, makers of legendary high-performance fishing rods.

St. Croix is the official rod of Anglers Inn and will be used at Anglers Inn Mexico trophy largemouth bass locations at Lakes El Salto and Picachos plus Brazil’s peacock bass operations on the Amazon.  

"Rods can be challenging to travel with especially with the restrictions imposed by the airlines”, said Billy Chapman, Jr., Anglers Inn owner and founder. “Our anglers have free use of a wide variety of St. Croix rods, the very best fishing rods in the world. All our customers need to bring is tackle and reels for hassle free travel and exceptional fishing.”   

Chapman has been a leader in the outfitter industry for more than 45 years and an inductee in the National Fishing Hall of Fame, the only outfitter to be so honored. Chapman’s lodges are legendary for exceptional fishing and the highest caliber of service and facilities.  

“St Croix exists to provide every angler the upper hand and the challenges on tackle that Anglers Inn presents is perfect for St. Croix rods,” said Jesse Simpkins, Vice President of Marketing at St. Croix. “Being the official rod for Billy Chapman’s operations is the ideal partnership and we use his destinations as the proving grounds for our many series of bass centric rods.”  

St. Croix Rod is a family-owned and managed manufacturer of high-performance fishing rods headquartered in Park Falls, Wisconsin with a heritage of USA manufacturing spanning more than seven decades.  

Other sponsors of Anglers Inn are Abu Garcia reels, Berkley, Huk, Humminbird, Minn Kota and Mossy Oak.
