Tim O’Brien, President and CEO of the company,    said, “The company started as a one-man shop and in time grew to become a leader in the angling world, by not only making the best and most desirable fishing    rods but by being a leader in promoting the catch and release of gamefish.”  The company is still family owned and committed to manufacturing its products in the  United States of America.
