Mission Tackle is a new tackle company, founded by Dan DeJaeghere to serve the needs of serious anglers looking for quality products that catch fish.
I have spent over 30 years working in the fishing industry, wearing many different hats. I have worked retail fishing sales, been a manufacturer's representative, fished competitive walleye tournaments for over a decade, including the PWT and FLW walleye events, written fishing articles for a number of publications, a fishing guide, and like most of you, just plain old fish for the joy of being on the water and catching a fish.
I have had the opportunity to fish many different bodies of water throughout the Midwest and Canada, and have learned much from many different expert anglers along the way. One thing that has always amazed me about fishing tackle is how regional it is. How a favorite lure for one area differs totally from another area. Here at Mission Tackle, we are able to offer a wide variety of jig models, sizes and colors to fit that regionality that is so prevalent in the fishing industry. We currently offer almost 500 different varieties of jigs, available in both bulk and packaged offerings. This allows you, the angler, a choice that most manufacturers aren't able to offer.
So why the name Mission Tackle?
This is a question that is posed to me quite often. First of all, our slogan Fishin' is our Mission explains the passion that most anglers have for the sport. For most of us, fishing is more than just a way to pass the time; it is a passion of ours.
As anglers, our Mission is to catch fish, and our products are designed to help you do just that. But Mission Tackle reflects more than just the passion and desire of anglers to enjoy their sport. Deep down, we are designed with a desire to make a difference in other people's lives, and Mission Tackle will work to do just that.
The majority of our products are manufactured in Central America. It is no secret that labor is less here, but the workers are skilled at what they do, and our quality is second to none in the industry. Having said that, Mission Tackle is more than a fishing tackle manufacturer. We are a business that will function as a Mission to make lives better for the less fortunate, or "the least of these". Because, ultimately improving the life of other human beings is more important than catching a fish.
We appreciate your support and your choice to choose Mission Tackle. Your comments and suggestions are important to us, because without you, our customer, we will not exist.
