Morgantown, WV - RockyBrook Sinkers (RBS) announced today it has reached a sponsorship agreement with professional  angler Kenneth “Boo” Woods from Hazard, Kentucky,  beginning with the 2014 season. 

“I’m proud to have Boo as part of our team” said Brook Pauley, owner of RBS, “He’s an upstanding individual who works hard on and off the water”. 

Pauley met Woods while fishing as a Co-angler on the FLW Tour.  The two drew each other in a BASS Northern Open event on Lake Oneida last year which ultimately lead to the sponsorship deal.

“It was a good opportunity to spend the entire day with Boo and to see how he reacted to the ups and downs that a tournament day brings’ said Pauley, “That’s important to a sponsor. You want an angler who is going to represent your company in a positive manner at all times no matter how their day is going”.

Woods qualified to fish the 2014 BASS Elite Series through the 2013 BASS Northern Opens.  He is also a fishing guide on Lake Okeechobee in the off season. Woods will fish out of a Ranger Z520C pulled by a Dodge Ram Pickup.  Both rigs will be wrapped with RBS graphics by H2O HydroWrap of Hendersonville, Tennessee.

“I’ve been working hard to get to this point in my fishing career” said Woods, “after fishing both the FLW Tour and BASS Opens the last few years I feel that it’s time to make the move to the Elites.  I’m very fortunate to sign a title sponsor like RBS.  They understand the fishing industry and the hard work that it takes to be successful in it.  I’ve been using RBS drop shot weights for the last couple years and it’s a product I have confidence in and am proud to represent”.

RBS makes a limestone sinker that caters to every type of fishing.  Their most popular bass fishing sinkers are the 3/16, ¼, 3/8 and ½ ounce drop shot weights.  Because of their unique shape and size they don’t snag nearly as much as conventional weights.  RBS are currently available in Walmart, Cabelas, Dick's Sporting Goods and online at

“A vital part of our job as a new company is to promote the sport of fishing” said Pauley, “sponsoring Boo will assist in that endeavor.  By fishing the Elites he will introduce RBS to a larger audience”.
