Electric, a California based eyewear brand, has partnered with Chris Zaldain, an elite angler on the competitive freshwater bass fishing circuit. Chris is joining the best in class when it comes to freshwater fishing with an energy and style all his own. Chris continues to improve his fishing game and his professional peers recognize him as a young gun with a big career ahead. Electric is excited to have Chris bring Electric’s best in class OHM polarized sunglasses to this competitive environment and aid him in seeing the big fish needed to take down the competition in this week’s Bassmaster Classic, known to many as the Super Bowl of bass fishing.
“Chris is one of the best bass anglers to ever come out of the West Coast and we are extremely happy to have him join the Electric family. Electric will support Chris on his quest to become the best angler he can be and Chris will help test and provide key feedback for future eyewear products. He is well represented and engaged on social media and has already been sharing with his audience the advantages of fishing with Electric’s OHM Polarized lenses. It’s refreshing to sponsor an athlete that is just as stoked on the brand as you are stoked to have them represent the brand. Welcome to the family Chris!” Todd Kline, Electric Fishing Ambassador
“I am very excited to join Electric as a long-time fan of the brand and its quality sunglasses. Eyewear plays a major role in my fishing success, and having access to the best polarized lenses, gives me added confidence when fishing in this year’s Bassmaster Classic. My tortoise Mudslinger frames with the OHM polarized bronze lenses will be a huge asset in shallow water and under cloudy Houston skies.” Chris Zaldain, Professional Fisherman and Electric Ambassador
