Gerald Swindle talks about the loss of Ed Chambers, owner of Zoom Baits. The man who gave him one of his first sponsorships and turned into a good friend.
After 17 Forrest Wood Cup appearances and two Bassmaster Classic qualifications, and as he nears the $2 million mark in career winnings, Wesley Strader still just wants to fish. Whether it’s bluegills, catfish, or the bass that pay his mortgage, he said that “the more I fish, the more comfortable I am with my equipment and my mechanics.”
A tireless worker, thinker and tinkerer, Chambers was a pillar in the industry, a reluctant legend. Thank you to Todd Ceisner from BassFan and all involved in this tribute for Ed Chambers Sr.
A giant of our industry died Tuesday. Ed Chambers, the founder and owner of Zoom Bait Company, was 78 years old. Thank you to Ken Duke of Fishing Tackle Retailer for this wonderful tribute story.
It is with great sadness, founder of Zoom Bait Company, William Edward Chambers Sr. passed early Tuesday morning.
Our Zoom Pros did not disappoint! There were a lot of fish catches last week while the Bassmaster Elite Series took on Grand Lake – Grove, OK. Our guys brought about 450 pounds of bass to the scales. Great job to all our guys!
