We Get REAL with Lew’s CEO Gary Remensnyder

HAPPY FATHER’S DAY! …for all you post-day dads out there.

Before we give you all the info about this episode, we have to beg your forgiveness on something: for two weeks, we promised you some time with Mark Sosin.  Unfortunately, we ran into a technical issue that prevented us from bringing you Mark on this episode.  However, we’ve got good news: we’ll have Mark for you next week, and we have an outstanding show for you right now!

Lew’s Fishing Tackle and Strike King Lures are a couple of the biggest brands in the industry, and we were fortunate enough to have with us Lew’s Holdings Corporation CEO Gary Remensnyder!  Gary has had the opportunity to fish all over the world, and he shares plenty of those stories, along with his excitement for the future of fishing with the next generation.

Gary talked extensively about Lew’s partnership with the Future Fisherman Foundation and the Lew’s High School Product Grant Program.  It’s a product grant initiative designed specifically to provide Lew’s Mach rods and reels at no charge in response to project-based applications as a way to nurture high school sanctioned fishing club activities to the benefit of their members, schools and communities.  The guys then chimed in with their own stories and perspectives on how fishing impacts the lives of young people.

The best part of our conversation was growing to understand how real Gary is; despite having that prestigious title, he’s been a passionate outdoorsman from the very beginning.  Bottom line is this: the next time you’re considering a product from Lew’s or Strike King, you’ll know that, from the very top, the people from these companies LOVE being a part of the fishing industry.

If you’re a gearhead (yeah, we know you are), you’ll definitely want to hear Gary’s rundown on what they’ve got, what they’re developing, and what you can get your hands on – including Blair Wiggins’ signature rods.  But he doesn’t stop there; he gives an expert-level primer on rod mechanics, physics, and how Lew’s builds such great rods!

We wouldn’t be “Reelin’ with the IGFA” if we didn’t highlight one of key components of the International Game Fish Association: conservation.  It’s a big deal for Gary, and he provides his perspective on why its so important.
