Wading To Bluegrass is not possible

Again with the severe weather changes.  More  bitter cold  brought on a nice base of ice over the local ponds and reservoirs, then again warm days and rain and strong wind slowing down the ice production. The Maumee river is still mostly open up and cleared of ice but is so muddy and flowing fast that there isn’t much going on in there right now.  We are hoping that it gets cold again so we can maybe get some more ice fishing in. In the meantime we are steadily preparing for the spring Walleye Run.

That being said as a proud American and small business owner I am afforded the opportunity to do my part in keeping America strong. I do my best through out the year to seek out and purchase American made products that we can sell  here in the shop. I have had success with many of our main products . Unfortunately some fishing equipment simply is not made in the USA at all so we have to do what we can.

Listed below are just a few some of our American products and where they are made.
