We have the most awesome news!
We've been given permission to work with a small group of women US Veterans as a pilot program to teach them to tie our lures!
As many of you know, Bill and I have had some growing pains in the last several years. We've been battling a few health problems while business is flourishing, creating longer lead times than we'd like and causing a bit of frustration for some of our clients. It really is only the two of us working the equivalent of 2 full time jobs each, along with our daughter when she's not chasing a toddler and Bill Rothwell, Thank God for him, when he's able.
With the cost of living always rising and making fishing lures being our ONLY income, we've struggled a bit with what to do. We have to make more lures to meet demand, in order to grow. With the opportunity to be on TV, and several Distributors wanting to carry our products, we needed to find a solution.
Enter these beautiful, talented women that jumped at the opportunity to turn this into a fun group hobby for a little spare cash, and see where it takes us all!
Over the next few weeks we'll be launching our "Vises for Vets" program.
Stay tuned for updates, as we're going to need some help getting enough Vises, tools and materials for everyone. We are NOT non-profit, so we'll have to find creative ways to get this done. Please share, feel free to offer suggestions and resources, and most of all show us your support for this pilot project. We're taking a slower, more expensive, more difficult way than outsourcing overseas, but it's important for Bill and I to try to keep as much of our business "Made in the USA" as we can, and our Veterans deserve our consideration and support.
Thank you all so much for your continued loyalty, patience and encouragement! What an incredible journey this little therapeutic "hobby" started 12 years ago turned into!
