Whether you’re on an extended pack trip in the Sawtooth Mountains or taking on the rapids of the Salmon River, your adventures will require gear. Investing in outdoor equipment and accessories is necessary for any outdoors enthusiast. Losing a key piece of gear is an unfortunate but likely scenario, however. Because tracking down lost gear can sometimes feel hopeless, Karmik Outdoors created a solution.
Robert Gillingham happened to stumble upon someone’s lost fly rod while out and about one day. Eager to get the fly rod back to its rightful owner, Gillingham began the search, but no leads turned up.
“People want to do the right thing; they just need the opportunity to,” says Gillingham. “I looked at all these different lost and found companies and none of them were meeting the needs of the outdoor market.”
Thinking there had to be a better solution, he launched Karmik Outdoors.
