Saltwater Fishing Manufacturers

Part of the effort here at Saltwater Fishing Texas is to introduce you to the Texas-based manufacturers of saltwater fishing tackle, gear, lures, and equipment.

These are large and small companies, from garage based outfits to multi-million dollar operations. They all, in their own way, add to the landscape of innovation and tradition of Saltwater Fishing in Texas.

Follow the links to learn more about their products, their operations, and their future plans. You’ll meet the innovators and hear their stories. I’m sure you’ll be as impressed as I was when I met them and interviewed them for SFT.
