Introducing a Seller’s Marketplace for the Sportfishing Industry

Portland, Oregon – FishingGear.com introduces an online marketplace for consumers in the Sportfishing Industry, a place for small independent manufacturers to create their own online storefronts to sell their handcrafted fishing gear. FishingGear.com is supporting the Do-It-Yourself (DIY) movement, supporting small businesses and promoting American made products. We provide consumers access to new and specialty items not otherwise available in their local area or through major retailers.

Until now, independent lure and tackle makers have had to rely on Ebay, Etsy, Craigslist, flea markets and word of mouth to sell their handcrafted fishing products. Due to the lack of venues, FishingGear.com was developed as a platform for small independent sellers to showcase their products in front of a targeted fishing community unlike places like Ebay and Etsy where buyers have to comb through a multitude of unrelated items to find what they are looking for.

FishingGear.com is the first and only online marketplace that caters specifically to the $115 Billion dollar Sportfishing industry. By combining the the power of the internet and a simple to use interface, sellers can now reach a targeted global audience. FishingGear.com saves sellers time and money. What could take months and thousands of dollars to build a website and generate traffic, sellers can literally set up their shop and start selling in minutes.

Buyers can save time by browsing through hundreds of unique fishing products in one convenient location and save money by buying directly from the manufacturer. We are also creating an educational environment where anglers can learn of new products and techniques from around the country. Competitive bass fishermen may find a special lure or color combination on FishingGear.com that might not be available elsewhere which could potentially make the difference of being on the podium or watching from the crowd. Even non- competitive anglers may find something that will give them the edge when the fish are not biting. Salmon fishermen from the Great Lakes might find learn a few tricks from Salmon fishermen in the North West; Florida Bass anglers may hear of a new secret sauce from California.
