Over the past several months, Joe and I have been doing some serious re-vamping of Rvrfshr Products...new business plan, new products, new website...and we've got an awful lot done over that time.
First, thanks to Piscatorial Pursuits, who has provided a lot of business to us by steering folks our way with our banner ad...and especially thanks to all of our current customers who have used our tackle and had success. It's very gratifying to see anglers go out and get excited about catching fish on our gear!
To those of you who aren't our customers yet, give our website a look and see if we have something that piques your interest...I'm proud to say that we have the best hardware for catching river salmon and steelhead bar none, and if you use it you'll find that out for yourself, too!
For those of you who are familiar with our products, you'll see all the old standbys on our new website; the spoons and spinners, the hooks, the jigheads...but you'll also see a whole bunch of new stuff...and there's more on the way soon.
So, here's our new website: Rvrfshr Products
. Please check it out and give us some feedback on how it works for you. We think it's a lot easier to navigate and use than our old one, besides looking better as it's updated with our new logo and new gear!
Special big shout out to PP member Irish Rogue who gave us so much help putting it together that I can't even begin to relay just how much he did. Thanks, Brian...you won't ever be shy on hardware in your tackle bag
And now for the good stuff...
Our spinner, the Rvrwhrlr...our selection of finishes amongst the sizes has expanded, most notably we are now producing a size 4 Black Chrome spinner just in time for summer steelhead fishing.
Winter runs, summer runs, salmon...if you're looking for a spinner, we've got 'em.
Our spoon, the Rvrwaggler, is the best designed spoon out there for salmon and steelhead, and besides having the Rvrwaggler available in all the best finishes, we were the first to ever produce a hammered 50/50 gold and silver spoon. Our copper, gold, and silver finishes are just that...real copper, gold, and silver, with all the reflective properties that those real finishes possess. Silver-colored, or gold-colored finishes look great on the shelf...the real thing looks great underwater, and we're in the business of catching fish, not fishermen.
Here are the most exciting new products we've got...all of the finishes of spoons we've made in the past now come in hammered spoons, too...these hammered copper and hammered black chrome spoons are going to be doing some damage to summer runs this coming summer!
Big winter runs...
Shiny summer runs...
Hatchery fish for the BBQ...
Everybody likes the Rvrwaggler
Also just in time for summer, our line of jigheads has just expanded enough to fill virtually every jig need out there in the Pacific Northwest!
Heavy wire Sickle Hooks, the strongest and sharpest jig hooks ever made, in various sizes and weights, both in 90 degree bends with lead, or 60 degree bends with heavy Gold plated or Silver plated beads. Just like the Sickle Siwash hooks, these hooks hook, and these hooks hold.
Another exciting new line of products is the Rvrworm and Light Bulb Dibbler. Some of you who have fished with me over the past couple of years have seen them being field tested, and since they are proven producers, they join the lineup of Rvrfshr Products now, too! Right now they are available in six inch models in two colors...Fluorescent Orange and Fluorescent Pink...and come with matching Dibbler heads. Two more colors are on the way, Fluorescent Green/Chartreuse, and Fluorescent Merthiolate/Red.
Stay tuned for 3 inch paddle tails suitable for poking on a jighead...they're coming soon, too!
Yeah, they really do work
All of our lures come with all the terminal gear necessary to get you on the water...and most importantly, they all come with the Rvrsticker Sickle Siwash hook! For those of you have used them before, you know that they have the best hookup to land ratio of any of the siwash hooks out there...so much better than any round bend siwash it's a wonder why anyone would use any other hooks at all on their spoons and spinners!
These hooks are available in sizes 4, 2, 1, 1/0, 2/0, and 3/0, and in various size packages. For the first time in a while we are fully stocked with all of the sizes. Demand has been so high in the past for these hooks that we really got stocked up on them!
We also have Sickle Octopus Hooks that we've been testing this past winter, and they really passed the test. Right now they come standard with Rvrworm/Light Bulb Dibbler packs (along with beads and/or sequins, too!), and will soon be available in day or bulk packs, too!
Another set of exciting products that are still on the horizon, but not too far off, is an expanded line of spoon sizes. All of the Rvrwagglers you're used to seeing come in sizes ranging from 3/8 ounce to 1/2 ounce...coming soon are smaller spoons for summer run fishing, probably either in 1/3 or 1/4 ounce sizes, or both, and also larger spoons for big water fishing, probably in the 3/4 ounce size.
So that's about it for the news right now...as always, we've got great Guide Pricing, Wholesale Pricing for retail outlets, and bulk pricing for the regular Joe who knows what he wants, and he wants a lot of it...contact us directly to inquire about those deals!
Since our website is brand new, there are bound to be a few typos and mishaps to be found...please let me know if you see anything that needs to be fixed, and a pack of lures might be heading your way if you're right
Thanks, everyone, and we look forward to being your source of steelhead tackle for many years to come!
