Angler's Story

A true angler from Richmond, Utah, Jim spends most of his time walking the rivers or floating around the lakes on his pontoon.  He always has the next fishing trip planned before his current one is over.  If Jim isn't on the river or lake, then you are most likely to find him in his garage working on and perfecting his latest ideas and inventions.  He enjoys working with the fishing gear industry.  He puts an endless number of hours into his inventions to fine-tune them into perfection.  Jim notices the slightest details that go into fishing equipment, so he tends to find areas that are lacking or need improvement.  After some deep thought he starts to create much needed solutions to those problems.
