Celebrating One Year at American Tackle w/ the Hardest Attempt Yet

This week marks one year of working as the Marketing Director at American Tackle Company and this week I completed the hardest build I’ve attempted yet.


My first Fish Scale pattern on a new Frog Rod. Although it’s not perfect, I can say I am proud of it because a year ago I was just attempting my first build; the year has been great progress and I’ve really enjoyed every step along the way.
I couldn’t have done it without my colleagues, and especially my boss Darrin! I’ve grown not only as a custom rod builder, but as a professional in the fishing industry. What a year it has been, and I can’t imagine being anywhere else; so let’s bring on many years in the future!!!

Great looking rod! Guess we can't call you a newbie any more, eh?
