Larson FX


The Larson FX promotional team has added four more members, Paul Hall, Anthony Cameron, Martin Pedneault, Ken Loya to support the growing Larson FX user base in and around Ontario and Montreal, Canada. 

Hall, Cameron, Loya and Pedneault will be working directly in partnership with their local dealers, Dewildt Honda in Hamilton and DeWildt Marine & Powersports in Innisfil, Ontario Canada, Orleans Boat World & Sports in Ottawa, Ontario Canada, Saguenay Marine in Jonquiere, Quebec Canada, respectively. 

“We are excited to have all of our new FX PRO’s as part of our FX Promotional team and to have their expertise, support and voice of the fishermen to represent Canada as we continue to grow the FX brand,” said Rob Parmentier, Larson Boat Group President and CEO. 

Each new FX Pro team member will be fishing from the Larson FX 2020 DC platform. “Aligning ourselves with an FX Pro allows the brand, the boats and my dealership additional visibility in the environment the FX series was created for in a testimonial setting,” add Dan Proulx, Co-Owner and President of Orleans Boat World & Sports – home to FX Promotional team members Cameron and Loya. “Paul Hall and the other FX Promotional team members add value to our dealerships and sales process at events, shows and out on the water,” said Ken DeWildt, owner and President of DeWildt Honda, Marine & Powersports. 

“I chose to switch from my former boat to the Larson FX because they are an awesome fishing machine. The rough water ride and stability from the VEC hull plus the fishability and comfort are second to none,” said Ken Loya Jr. 2004 CFT N.E.O.B.A BASS Angler of the Year.

The goal of the Larson FX promotional team is to share with current and future avid freshwater anglers the benefits of Larson FX boat ownership as brand advocates. 

The three new members join the Larson FX promotional team of: Dan “Walleyedan” Eigen, Bob Jensen, Kevin Valerius, Bruce Meinz, Mike Frisch, Nick Miltimore, and Ben Griffin.
