Darrin's Really Big Move...Florida or Bust 

Darrin Fish


American Tackle Vice-President Darrin Heim recently made

the arduous journey from Washington state to sunny central Florida for a permanent relocation and to oversee ATC's

Southeast facility.   With him, traversing one corner of the

country to the other for over 3500 miles, was his wife Kelly, children Alexander and Julia, two dogs and a boat.  Darrin

says, "It was a long, long drive, but totally worth it to be able

to be a bigger part of the day to day operations."  He is

looking forward to some Florida fishing and working shoulder

to shoulder with the staff at ATC headquarters.

guides, the Medium and Light frame tops were redesigned to incorporate American Tackle's unique Ring Lock frame system.  This system offers more protection from ring loss and damage from impact while completing a Ring Lock guide set.  In addition, all newer top designs will now have brace arms secured on the top of the tube reducing line hang-up during tip wrap situations.  Available in Nanolite and Duralite rings from 4mm for Micro Guide rods to 6, 7, 8,

and 10mm rings (10mm rings

in Medium tops only).
