When he is not tournament fishing, Matt spends his months in South Texas on Lake Falcon. He is recognized as one of the best deep water and offshore structure bass fishermen in the world.

Reed said “Sawgrass’s work with contact fishing rods is really second to none. The XH BDA 776-1 OS/S-C rod has become my go to. Often, I put the boat on the trailer and realize I have only fished one model all day. The 7’7” XH! Sawgrass listens and delivers.”

Fishing is a passion here at Sawgrass and we are proud to have Matt leading a critical portion of our business.

“Matt is an excellent fisherman and a better person. I can’t pick a better representative for Sawgrass. Plus, it gives me another excuse to head South and fish with Matt on Falcon”, said Sawgrass founder Greg Zwernemann.
