SHERMAN OAKS, CALIFORNIA – Fishhound, the unique online resource that quickly and easily pinpoints the best waters and fishing spots on any water, has deployed a team of seasoned sales associates to offer a game-changing way for retailers to better serve anglers and make their stores more profitable.

The sales team is spread out across the U.S., enrolling fly shops, lodges and guides in an incentive-laden profit-sharing program that makes them money for doing what they already do.

 “Our associates have done a tremendous job enrolling and explaining the benefits of our service,” said Charles Dohs, co-founder and president of Fishhound. “We’re quickly closing in on a 100 shops who are part of our network, and that’s a reflection of the excitement and potential people see in our product. We’d like to see that number increase, because the more shops that are enrolled, the more accurate information anglers will have while preparing for a day on the water.”

Dohs added there’s still room for additional associates on the Fishhound sales team. Fishhound offers an aggressive compensation package for part-time assistance.

The Fishhound.com website goes live for anglers on July 1, providing a subscription to interactive maps, hatch information, and other personalized data to an angler’s desktop or mobile device.

 The sales team is being lead by Grant Adam at Fishhound’s headquarters. A veteran of the fly fishing industry, Grant can be reached at grant@fishhound.com or (800) 469-0224 Ext. 109.
