Dobyns Rods and Sportsman 360 TV Partnership

San Jose, CA – July 31, 2014 – Owen Nolan and Sportsman 360 TV have announced a strategic partnership with Dobyns Rods owner and bass fishing legend, Gary Dobyns.  Nolan, an 18-year National Hockey League veteran, five-time All-Star, and Olympic Gold Medalist, launched Sportsman 360 TV program in August, 2013. Nolan’s show, among the most popular outdoor programs out West in just its first season, features a unique lineup of NHL players, professional athletes, bass anglers and other celebrities, set against the backdrop of North America’s most scenic hunting and fishing destinations.

For Dobyns, the partnership is natural.


“Fishing has been the focus of my entire career, but I will admit that not much excites me like pulling the trigger,” said Dobyns.  “What is so great about Sportsman 360 TV is that we will be able to share our passion for all the outdoors – both hunting and fishing. That is what makes this partnership such a great fit.”


Said Nolan, “It really is an honor for us to be aligned with a quality company like Dobyns Rods. Gary Dobyn’s angling achievements and dedication to rod building is unparalleled which is why I am thrilled to partner with a guy that shares a similar passion for the outdoors.”


The second season of Sportsman 360 TV, which started on July 30, 2014, airs Wednesdays at 12:30 PM PST / 3:30 PM EST on the NBC Sports Network. Rebroadcasts are available on the World Fishing Network and WildTV in the United States and Canada, in addition to Comcast Sports Net in northern California.
