Lew’s Rods and Reels
Lew’s is the newest addition to the DPR client family, retained in early 2010 to help lead the brand’s relaunch of a full product line of freshwater and inshore saltwater rods and reels, plus related accessories. Although the Lew’s brand dates back to 1950, it has faded from its place of prominence in recent years.

Plano Molding Company
Plano is the industry leader in molded cases for fishing and the shooting sports. Their tackle boxes were the first to use the advantages of molded plastics for strength, durability and non-rusting properties. Their plastics molding expertise has since taken them into the hunting category, as well as hardware and golf. DPR has been retained to complement their internal marketing communications effort in support of their fishing and shooting-sports product lines. We develop and distribute press releases for new products, as well as for related interests involving their pro staff and many sponsorship relationships. Our work is also used for Plano web site content.

Our responsibilities include marketing communications supporting the brands’ athlete sponsorships, event marketing, trade show presence, new product introductions and customer newsletters.
"GPA is an international natural gas trade association with a small staff, so with everyone having to wear many hats we often looked at outreach communications as being more of a chore than a responsibility. We selected Dollahon PR through an RFP process and they have served us extremely well, bringing frequency and consistency to our internal communications, expertise to our external needs, and new and better ways for the things 'we've always done this way.' We absolutely view Gary and Crystal as adjunct marketing staff, and a very important part of our team."
Executive Director, GPA
"Dollahon PR gets a lot of the credit for Larew's growth for each of the years since my ownership. They've proven to me they know this industry, and fully understand our long-term goals and how to get us there. I find I don't have to do much looking over their shoulder... in fact, we're usually just following their lead."
Owner, Gene Larew Lures
