Who Are We?
“You did not kill the fish only to keep alive and to sell for food… You killed him for pride and because you are a fisherman. You loved him when he was alive and you loved him after. If you love him, it is not a sin to kill him. Or is it more?”
——-Ernest Hemingway, The Old Man and the Sea
The understanding of this deadly yet somewhat life-giving relation between a fisherman and his fish, a killer and his kill, and the polite yet unbreakable justification of it, set us free to fall in love with the act of fishing. Here ‘us’ refers to the Fisherreel team members that partnered up with one another to form this platform with this common passion for fishing.
Fishereel came into being in October, 2017, with a vision to be an authentic platform for sharing fishing tactics and reviews on top-of-the-line fishing gear. We are a bunch of fishing enthusiasts, college students, fathers of 9-year old’s, crew members from cruise lines that spent years on the waters, adventurers who spent months in the Amazon rainforest supporting themselves on improvised fishing tactics, and professional fishing gear designers who have been relentlessly experimenting on improving the whole experience. In short, we do know our gear better than the back of our hands.
Here at Fishereel, our collective enterprise aims towards equipping fishing enthusiasts from all around the world with the best possible gear and techniques through our elaborate blogs and in-depth gear reviews. We believe any individual with love for fish and the hobby of fishing is part of our clan. Our discussions would only empower the clansmen by the light of shared knowledge.
