2018 Spinning World Champion Joins Wiley X Elite Fishing Team

Slovak angler Lukáš Hollý uses the Wiley X advantage to help claim a double crown at prestigious global event.

The Elite Fishing Team for leading protective polarized eyewear brand Wiley X has been further bolstered with the addition of the newly crowned individual and team spinning world champion.

Slovakian angler Lukáš Hollý joins the star-studded Wiley X lineup fresh from winning the FIPsed World Spinning Championships in Sarajevo, Bosnia and Herzegovina and owes much of his individual and team triumphs to the benefits that Wiley X sunglasses offer to fishermen.

Lukáš said: “The competition saw some of the best anglers in the world battling on the river Železnica in the discipline of spinning with artificial baits. I won my sector on the first day and then I had to fight very hard in the third and fourth round after we made some bad decisions for the conditions.”

The difference for Lukáš and his team, really came from Wiley X sunglasses, of which he is already a fan and avid user of about eight years.

He explained: “From my point of view, it was a very difficult cham-pionship especially because of the conditions and the water level, which changed drastically every day. So, every day I had to catch using other tactics and for this, Wiley X glasses were really perfect – mostly in finding different structures in the water, watching my lure’s movement and checking how fish reacted to my lure. Without these possibilities it would be much more difficult to win, but also thanks to Wiley X glasses – I did it.”

Lukáš took the overall crown as individual World Champion and the Slovakian team beat off Russia and Italy on the podium to take the team World Champion prize.

Wiley X EMEA Vice President and Outdoor Director, Thomas Waever, added:

“First of all, I once again would like to congratulate Lukáš on his fantastic win. I know he, among other skilled anglers, beat off two former World Champions to claim the title. Lukáš has worn Wiley X for years and I’m proud that Wiley X contributed to his win.

As Wiley X is a fast-growing brand on a global scale, my team and myself look forward to be working closely together with Lukáš in years to come. It is always great to work with and learn from the best of the best and Lukáš has shown to be just that – the best in the world.”
