SWATE FISHING CO. - AMERICA, EARTH
FOR THOSE WHO
UNDERSTAND FISHING IS
"Made in America by locals, for locals"
We’ve partnered with a locally run operation right here in the USA to manufacturer Locals Only braid in small made to order batches, exactly to our spec. The braid is constructed using a dry-spun method, braiding 8 carriers of pre-colored and un-coated Polyethylene strands of fiber. The colors are infused at the time of fiber creation, meaning that our colors won’t fade over time, and you won’t find any colored coating coming off on your guides or hands after use. The line has virtually no memory, no stretch, has high abrasion resistance, and is quiet through the guides. We like up to 65lb for punching through hydrilla in Texas, and 10 or 15lb for bombing small finesse baits up North with a fluorocarbon leader.
KERI PANTERA WAS HERE
INKED SERIES RODS: DESIGNED BY THE TRIBE
SWATE LORE AND THE BRIGADE
Very little is known about the origins of Swate's designs but we do know one person is responsible. His name is Keri Pantera. Even if you have been in fishing most of your life you still probably have never heard of him and if you can tell his stories you are a decendant of the greatest angler of all time. We hope to honor KP in all that we do by distecting the almost non-existent trail of knowledge he leaves behind.
As the story goes, Keri disappeared from his engineering job. Everyone knew he fished a lot but it wasn't until he was gone and people started to investigate his dissapearance that his geneous was discovered. Normally, and ever since his disappearance, he has covered his tracks. Only a few have spotted him and it is nearly always right before or after an epic fishing story unravels in the media.
Those who fish Swate join the Brigade of anglers that understand that fishing is about creativity, adventure, and freedom.
