He said that the TDJ team made him feel like family almost immediately. "From the moment we decided to work together, Joey and Thomas and the whole team made me feel like part of their family," he said. "They have already planned to be at every event this year, and having that comfort level of a committed group behind me gives me more motivation as we get set to begin the year."
Thomas Moore, Sales Manager for TDJ Oilfield Services said that they knew early on that Ponds was the guy for them. "A mutual friend, Chuck Cole, told us about Pete and his career, so we decided to meet him," said Moore. "I went fishing with him and caught an eight-pound largemouth, but more importantly had a great day with him and getting to know him; it made the decision to sponsor him fairly simple."
He said Ponds' nature was what made the partnership work. "Like us, Pete is a good ol' country boy with a lot of passion for what he does," said. Moore. "He fits us, and has become like family in a short time. "He is the perfect person to represent our company; I think we might be more excited about the year ahead than he is."
In addition to representing the company with his boat and truck wrap on tour in 2015, Ponds will also spend some of his time away from tournaments entertaining TDJ Oilfield Services clients as he travels between events. He will do that by doing what he loves to do most; taking them fishing.
Look for the Pete Ponds / TDJ Oilfield Services rig as he travels the country competing on the 2015 FLW Tour.
