Handsome Hickory Handreels for Backpack Fishing

Hickory is one tough mother of a wood species. No other commercially-available wood can match its combination of strength, toughness, hardness, and stiffness. Used over the centuries for things ranging from baseball bats to wheel spokes to the earliest airplanes, Hickory is now most commonly used for making tool handles, especially for axes. 

My dad was a big influence for me in starting this business, and in honor of Father's Day, I'm proud to make a limited release of Axe-Handle Hickory handreels available from now until June 30. These strong and solid backpack fishing kits are perfect for dads, granddads, uncles, brothers, and heck, moms and sisters too.

Each kit comes with 30 yards of 6-lb copolymer fishing line, a lead-free tackle kit, and a wooden hand reel with 3.8 cubic inches of built-in storage space.

Want an upgrade? You can add-on a Leather Reel Cover for just $5. Or, through the month of June, you can also select to receive a Hickory Handreel in both our Fish & Forage and Catch & Cook kits!
