Meet American Tackle Pro Staff Member Matt Sewell
Matt Sewell was born and raised in Fort Myers, Florida. He was lucky enough to grow up with a family that spent a lot of time outside. Matt enjoys doing anything outdoors, but fishing is his passion. He has been fishing the area of Pine Island Sound, Charlotte Harbor, Sanibel, and Fort Myers Beach his whole life.
Back in 2006, Matt started messing around online and decided to try to build his own rods. At first, Matt just built good rods for himself. Not really good looking rods, but functional rods. Everything from then on has just snowballed into becoming a serious rod builder. Matt stated," I am the type of guy that is always focused on quality. The large majority of the rods I build are built with top quality components." Matt does a lot with graphite tubing and abalone. Almost every rod he has built has some sort of abalone inlay or graphite handle.
