In 2020, Adam Merrifield set out to create an open source, patent-free biopolymer that could be manufactured in the kitchen, with conventional stove top methods using store-bought ingredients. This was to address the growing popularity of custom bait making using the industry standard plastisol, a PVC resin that doesn’t break down in water. Adam thought if he could make a safer, environmentally friendly alternative, hobbyists might be inclined to produce baits that don’t contribute further to environmental degradation.
Adam’s many attempts to perfect the recipe and process got him close, but ultimately the science was beyond him. Adam then sought to fund more advanced research by selling custom tackle, designed and manufactured with sustainability in mind. From the use of recycled materials, the method of manufacturing, and right down the packaging. Each aspect of the early prototypes, from hook strength, and wire tied skirts, was considering to ensure lures lasted longer, and didn’t break off or fall apart in the water prematurely.
Today, a portion of the proceeds of our lure sales goes towards continual research and development for biopolymers and other sustainable material and manufacturing methods. Another portion goes towards conservation organizations to help maintain and sustain our local waterways, and continue educational efforts to protect our natural resources for years to come.
