In December of 2014, two brothers shocked their clients, friends, and family by quitting their six-figure jobs to disrupt the fishing world…
They sold everything (from their company holdings to their real estate to their digital assets) so they could start their dream lifestyle company called Salt Strong where they would:
- Teach the world how to fish
- Help create amazing family experiences through fishing
- Challenge the status quo of how fishing apparel is made and distributed in America
This short video shows the how and why it all got started:
The Salt Strong Mission:
“Helping America strengthen families and create unforgettable memories through fishing.”
The Salt Strong Vision
