"I'm excited to be a part of the KastKing family!" says Dylan Nusbaum.
"I am so excited to begin a long relationship with a rising pro fishing star like Dylan Nussbaum," says Al Noraker, Director of Product Development at KastKing. "Dylan has already proven to have angling skills and knowledge far beyond his years. His enthusiasm for catching giant walleye is incredible. Don't be surprised when you see his name at the top of the leader boards throughout the year. Dylan has already been testing and using KastKing WideEye Walleye rods and many different KastKing casting and spinning reels in his preparation for 2019. He is very excited to be using equipment that will allow him to compete at the highest level."
