Dean Silvester wins entry to elite USA tournament!

Quantum’s Dean Silvester has claimed the ultimate prize in Australian tournament fishing, adding another accomplishment to his remarkable tournament record of 24 wins and three Angler of the Year titles!

Coming from behind, Dean relied upon his extensive experience, calm composure, his Quantum reels, and his Watersnake electric motor to snatch victory in the 2017 B.A.S.S. Nation Championship at Lake Boondooma.

Dean utilised a broad variety of techniques to bag the bigger fish and seal the victory. A Quantum Smoke baitcaster reel, a Quantum Smoke Speed Freak 30 spin reel, and a Quantum Smoke PTiA 25 spin reel were Dean’s weapons of choice.

“Quantum reels are dependable and they deliver the finesse, durability and strength that is required for consistent tournament success. I’ve chosen to use Quantum reels for the last five years and they always get me past the post”, said Dean Silvester.

Dean is the first person in Australian bass fishing history to take out the Angler of the Year title and the Australian Championship event in the same year. The win secures Dean exclusive entry into the B.A.S.S. Nation Championship in South Carolina, USA.

We wish Dean the best of the luck in the biggest tournament of his life. We know he will do Quantum and Australia proud.
