Here’s who we’re looking for…

First and foremost— you must be a believer in Douglas products! We assume you have owned or used our products and have fallen in love! We get a lot of sponsorship requests, and I think it’s safe to say— this is the line in the sand to which, if you seeking sponsorship just to be sponsored, Douglas may not be the right fit.

Although Douglas Outdoors is relatively young to the fishing Industry, truly ground-breaking fishing gear is being produced from the brand. With the right team on our side we feel we can break down the new kid on the block barrier. We need your help getting the products in angler’s hands!— The quality, craftsmanship, design, and performance will do the rest!

Our ProStaff Program is about rewarding those who believe in our products and are interested in actively spreading the word. Spreading the word may come in the form of industry exposure, expertise, social followers, visitors/members, film and camera skills, etc. For sponsorships to be profitable in any way shape or form, it has to be a two way street. All levels are provided an apparel starter kit and special pricing on Douglas products. Douglas Outdoors pro deals are circumstantial on a individual bases depending on the category, level, and promotional efforts put forth upon acceptance.
