• The Boundary Waters Canoe Area Wilderness was an outstanding place to bring Reel Cool Fishing Bottles as we needed to travel light to get the most out of our experience. I just returned from an adventure with 25 of my favorite BSA Venture Crew members and leaders to the Boundary Waters in Minnesota. Big Bone Outdoors, LLC sponsored this trip and gave every adventurer an opportunity to take a fishing bottle along, and I am happy to report much success.

  • Jacob and I have returned from another great trip. The Reel Cool Fishing Bottle performed well in the North Atlantic as we landed several nice Cod fish off of the coast of Reykjavík, Iceland.

This will be a great chance to teach a bunch of youngsters how to use the Reel Cool Fishing Bottle. I hope the weather cooperates and we draw a good crowd. We'll have some promo giveaways at the Derby, so please come on out and spend some time with me and Reel Cool.

  • Beaverlick, KY: The team and I have been hard at work bringing you the original Reel Cool™ Fishing Bottle™! It's been far more complicated than one might think. Besides the obvious challenges in designing and manufacturing the bottles, we have had to identify and procure accessories; create a website; start setting up wholesale and retail networks; and more.
