That extraordinary knowledge of the boating and fishing industry offers a great resource to our team as we present informational programming to our viewers week after week”, she said.
“T-H Marine is really proud to partner with Fishing University, which has a great history and reputation as a true resource for fishermen”, said Jeff Huntley, President and CEO of T-H Marine Supplies. “We have admired all the great work that Charlie Ingram and Ray Brazier have done over the years. They really teach recreational anglers about fishing, boating, and equipment. They also reach out to our younger generation of fishermen to teach them about the sport and to encourage outdoor activities and careers. We are glad to have our name and our products associated with these great efforts”, he continued.
Headquartered in Huntsville, AL, T-H Marine was established in 1975. The company employs over 100 people in two plants in Alabama and one in Oklahoma.

“I have known Jeff and his father, Bill, for more years than I can even remember”, said Ray Brazier, Co-host of Fishing University. “Their involvement in and knowledge of the fishing and boating industry is beyond anything that I know of that any other company can offer. T-H Marine is known as the ‘go-to’ company when you need anything and all things boating! They’ve always been our supporters but it’s great to have them on board as one of our official sponsors for the upcoming season”, concluded co-hosts, Ray Brazier and Charlie Ingram.

About Fishing University
As one of the oldest Outdoor TV shows, Fishing University is celebrating 26 years of bringing quality fishing programming to avid viewers. Each week they hit the water accompanied by friends and professionals in the industry, as viewers are engaged in a competitive show that is packed full of ‘how to tips’. Not only is the show exciting, but it also lets people in on tricks of the trade from some of the very best. To add another dynamic to the situation, each boat is given a tackle box filled with identical tackle. This eliminates any tricks that one may have up their sleeves and forces them to rely on pure talent, and maybe a little luck. Fishing University can be seen on the Outdoor Channel three times a week. To see the entire schedule go to www.fishingu.com, and be sure to visit Fishing University on Facebook.
