Thank you for your interest in becoming part of the Soft Steel USA Pro-Staff. At Soft Steel USA, we have an uncommon enthusiasm for the sport of fishing. We enjoy every aspect of the sport, from preparing for the trip, to executing on the water, to sharing in the excitement of outstanding catches. For us, it is the total experience.

Our Pro-Staff partners are critical to our success. With exceptional content requirements to fuel the interest of our anglers, we require an extremely high activity level from our anglers. It is not for everyone, and that's okay. Our staff is comprised of a small group of anglers that truly enjoy playing a role in the positive experiences of anglers across the country.
