Wenatchee, WA. –Mack’s Lure Company, well known for its fishing products such as the Wedding Ring, announced the addition of “Uncle Wes” Malmberg to their Pro-Staff Team.
Wes is a well-known, and very popular, trout angling columnist with Northwest Sportsman Magazine, Outdoors Northwest, and WashingtonLakes.Com. He has specialized in trout angling at Western Washington lakes for the past decade.

“Wes and his enthusiasm for helping fellow anglers make for a great addition to our team,” says Mack’s Lure’s General Manager, Bob Schmidt.
“I am very honored and proud to be a part of the Mack’s family. I look forward to helping other trout anglers in the Northwest and abroad to enjoy the same success I do,” said Wes.
Wes is a member of the Northwest Outdoor Writers Association and soon to be a member of the Outdoor Writers Association of America. His new book, “Blue Collar Fly Fishing,” will be released by Wilderness Adventure Press in March 2012. He is currently working on a series of Washington trout angling DVD’s due to hit the shelves in late 2011 or early 2012.
