American Tackle Company Tours Asia
February's China Fish show in Beijing hosted Joe Meehan and Darrin Heim in their Asian tour. In the past, China, Taiwan and Korea were once thought of by many in terms of sourcing only, but now in 2012 AT's focus is on SALES. Joe Meehan comments, "Asia is American Tackle's second largest market so it makes sense that we meet our clients face to face and tour factories using our products" Fast delivery, quality and a growing worldwide brand means increased demand for AT's products. Joe continues, "Meeting with European & U.S. buyers with their factories at the same time to help facilitate design and part procurement went extremely well. Our service and accountability means we are just as committed to these projects as our clients." With many of the world's fishing rods made in Asia, it is natural for AT to participate in that theater which will be a growing focus in the years to come.

Meet American Tackle Pro Staff Member 
Dean Farley



Dean has fished with rod and line since the age of 7. He enjoys any kind of fishing; fly, lure, boat, beach, lake or river. If there's water there, he will fish in it. He has travelled extensively through B.C, Mauritius, Madeira, Denmark, Norway, Sweden, Florida, the Canary Islands, Ireland and of course, all over the UK pursuing his passion. 


Dean began rod building after losing his brother, a keen angler also, in 2007. He wanted something as a continuous memory. Hence the name "Legacy." Like his brother, Dean always prefers to be different and original. After alI, that's the whole point of a custom rod. Dean loves using materials that are unique, such as Mother of Pearl. He recently completed the World's first gilded fishing rod, using 24ct gold leaf - built for Stuart Collins of Stuart Fishing Tackle, Miami. The bulk of the rods Dean builds are for boat fishing, lure and beachcasters (surf rods to Americans).


American Tackle is very proud that Dean Farley has joined the team.  We are excited about seeing the Legacy continue to build.  Contact Dean Farley and view his website at:
