Briana is a rising star on the pro angler circuit. She currently fishes in the Bassmaster Opens and the Toyota Series. Her dreams as a lady angler do not stop there, Briana aspires to be the first female in the Bassmaster Elite Series and the first female to win the Bassmaster Classic. Briana is also paving the way in the fishing community through tournaments and her outreach in getting kids connected to opportunities to get out fishing.
“Briana Tucker is an excellent fit for the prostaff team as she is an upcoming bass fishing angler and a licensed captain who guides fishing trips on the Tennessee River in Alabama,” said Paige Hill-Murphy, Huk Community Manager. “We love Briana’s passion for fishing and her work with local high school teams encouraging kids to get involved in fishing.”

Originally from Colorado, Matt Massey was introduced to the outdoors by his father as a young child. He recently moved to Northeast Florida to pursue his professional bass fishing career.
Living in Florida, Matt also enjoys catching redfish in the intercoastal waterways of St. Augustine, making Matt a versatile fisherman in both the salt and fresh waters. “I love Huk because the gear is adaptable and dependable on every body of water,” commented Matt. “Fresh or salt, rain or shine, I know Huk has my back.”
Matt has been a part of the National Professional Fishing League for the past two years. Through the partnership, Huk will support Matt’s mission to continue fishing professionally by providing him with durable and protective gear for extended days on the water.
