FORT WORTH, TX--(Marketwire - Mar 15, 2013) - EVCARCO, Inc./Third Stone Corporation (OTCQB: EVCA) announced today that American Rodsmiths, Inc. (ARS), a wholly owned subsidiary of EvCarCo, had a successful re-launch of their brand under new management at the 38th annual Houston Fishing Show. Armed with new attitudes, backed with new technology and engineering, and supported by experience, the ARS team was able to promote and sell 30% more equipment than what was sold during the same show last year. This was primarily due to the introduction of new product, and the re-introduction of the historically popular model line "Trout Master Lite." This acceptance by the industry solidifies the decision of the Company to acquire ARS.
Gary Easterwood, President and CEO of EVCARCO/Third Stone, said, "The excitement of anglers at the show with regards to this transaction was evident. With our latest products and new direction, we are confident of our position in this $45 billion industry."
Walter Speck, EVP, stated, "According to the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service, the almost 40 million American anglers are more than 33 times the average attendance per game at all Major League baseball parks combined. This market is huge and ready for the new products and focus on shareholder value our management team brings to ARS."
