who we are
Our story began in a modest saddle and farm implement supply in the heart of the North Woods of Michigan. Samuel grew up like most young men of his time - with a deep connection to the great pines around him, to his family, and to a code of Honor and Ethics as strong as the plow steel that cut through his native soil. Summers spent casting flies waist deep in the sacred waters of his beloved Au Sable River, learning the trade of his father and grandfathers before him, and dreaming of the bright future that he would build with the sweat and toil of his own hands. When duty called, Samuel gave his all for the land of Liberty that he loved. His comrades knew him as a man of great resolve, and bravery - earning him the nickname Samuel Brave, one that would stay with him the rest of his days.
His legacy is one both epic and familiar - one that we are deeply proud of, and that we hope you too may connect with. That through that connection to the past, to the great men and women who shaped our history, that we may strive to fulfill the age old ideals of Honesty, Integrity and Trust - and restore the value of our word with a simple handshake.
Our products are inspired by the places and land that we love - Samuels beloved Streams and forests of Northern Michigan, the Great soaring plains of the central states, the jagged and snowcapped peaks of the American West - each one holds a unique place in our soul, a deep connection that cannot be spoken or understood, only felt. It is in these places that our souls are filled with the unspeakable glory of the simplest of things - the first rays of sunlight peering over rolling hills, the feeling of a gentle stream flowing around you as you cast in a four count rhythm, the smell of pine and fiery red and gold leaves beneath your feet - each perhaps, a glimpse at how life was truly meant to be.
