THE CRAFTSMAN'S COLLECTION: LIMITED RELEASE 

Each year, we celebrate Labor Day with a special product release that pushes the bounds of our craftsmanship. This year, inspired by memories of late-summer beach trips and the nautical buoys strung along the docks, we've created our Coastal Ash Edition. This limited release is hand-painted and distressed using traditional milk paint, and each is equipped for fishing in both freshwater streams and off of saltwater piers.

Hand-Painted Wooden Handreels for Backpack and Pier Fishing 

Learn about this special release:

 


I have fond memories of my family's trips to the northeast Atlantic. Every time we went, it felt like we were squeezing the last bit of summer out of the season, savoring the salty air, hot sun, and fresh seafood before autumn set in. I remember being fascinated by the weathered-yet-brightly-colored wooden buoys hanging along the docks, whose mysterious patterns read like a secret code.

Those late-summer trips are the inspiration for this limited release of Coastal AshPart of our annual Labor Day celebration of craftsmanship, these handreels are hand-painted, distressed, and then finished to give a rustic look with an ultra-smooth feel. 

Each kit comes with 30 yards of 10-lb copolymer fishing line, a lead-free tackle kit, and a solid-wood hand reel with 3.8 cubic inches of built-in storage space. Each reel is painted by hand with all-natural milk paint, and the included bait and tackle is perfect for freshwater streams or surf-side fishing from a dock or pier. Want an upgrade? Add-on a Leather Reel Cover for just $5.
