Proud Supporter of High School and Collegiate Fishing Programs


Lew’s, a legendary rod and reel brand with a history of product innovation that continues to this day, is a proud supporter of high school and collegiate fishing programs. The information that follows describes our official programs that have been designed to help school-sanctioned clubs/teams and their members acquire Lew’s products at a discount. Please acquaint your group with these opportunities, many of which have been initiated as a result of input from existing high school and college fishing teams from across the country. We sincerely hope your club/team is interested in becoming part of the rapidly growing list of those affiliated with the Lew’s brand and products.

Our school program isn’t about building pro anglers. We simply want young people to enjoy the sport like we do and serve as ambassadors for others to see and learn from.
