With the close of the 2015 fishing season, it is time to reward the anglers with the highest points totals for the NBAA product sponsor categories. Each year, when you renew as an NBAA member, there is a list of product sponsors on the form. The format is simple, if you use that brand or product, then you check the box. After you are done filling out the sponsor boxes, then you sit back and watch as the tournament season progresses. After each event you fish, the points you earn for each tournament are added to each of the categories that you selected. At the end of the season, the angler with the most points in each category is awarded the Product Angler of the Year. Then from all these categories, the angler with the most overall points is awarded the 2015 NBAA Angler of the Year Award. Here are the 2015 Sponsor Product award winners for each category.
