Team Valley Tire Sponsors.

When a commitment is made to compete at the best possible level that one can, it takes so much more than just a few early mornings and trips to the lake. Of course there is the preparation, the equipment, the hopeful skill and of course the luck but there is also a true need for background support. Whether it be in the form of financial, premium equipment or just overall support, a team cannot succeed without it's sponsors!

TVT has the best combination of sponsors and is very fortunate to be able to say that it is associated with such fine outstanding companies and individuals.


Harold Quigley and Steve Quigley of Valley Tire have been the longest running sponsor of ours and our annual Title Sponsor. Not only is it an honor to wear their name as our title sponsor but they truly provide full support of the team and our competitions.

Long ago we believed Shimano to offer the best in fishing reels, bar none. We also trusted their fishing rod products as it covered the specific needs of our fishing whether fresh or salt. With those opinions it was a great honor when we were able to ink a deal with Shimano Canada as a sponsor. I (Mark) have been a member of the Shimano National Field Staff for a good number of years now and consider it one of the crowning achievements for Team Valley Tire. It really is a lot of fun as well an honor to work with such fine people as Tom, Steve, Greg and Bob plus all of the other support staff at Shimano Canada's head office.

Their entire line of fishing reels and rods offers diversity and dependability while covering multiple price points. No matter which market segment you buy into, the Shimano products off the best options to you and you own angling experience.

The service and support of Shimano is also very well covered in our area with two warranty centers. Shimano's customer service is very well known and a leader in the industry and both of these shops wear that banner well.
