Kings of Bass, a longform video series featuring the pro staff teams from Lew’s and Strike King, is airing on Instagram TV and will highlight the lives of professional anglers on the top tours.

The new series will be filmed and produced by Tyler Anderson of Tyler’s Reel Fishing. The show will feature MLF Bass Pro Tour pros Kevin VanDam, Greg Hackney, Mark Rose, Andy Montgomery and Jeff Sprague.

It will cover the team as they prepare to compete on each stage of the BPT in 2020. Each episode will feature the anglers while practicing, discussing their practice periods, competing in the events and while living their daily lives.

“Until now, the fans have been able to see the results of the efforts that these anglers put in during competition,” said David May, Executive Vice President of Marketing for Lew’s and Strike King. “I’ve often been struck by the level of dedication and sacrifice our anglers make to do this job. Kings of Bass will give the public a glimpse of that complete picture.

“I don’t think that most people really know what it takes to be a professional angler,” May added. “The long hours of being alone with your thoughts, the time on the road away from family, and the amount of preparation it takes to perform at this level. It is truly a career of passion, and we wanted to share this with the angling public.”

The series begins airing June 9. Kings of Bass will air each Tuesday on the Lew’s Fishing and Strike King Instagram channels. Each full episode will feature the whole cast. Following episodes will be recaps from individual anglers from the previous event.
