To be a savvy angler, it helps to have an ego. But not necessarily the kind that makes your head too big for a hat. We’re talking about EGO: the innovative manufacturer of sport fishing nets and accessories.
Grant Corbett started EGO in 2004 after a dismal trip through a sporting goods department where he quickly realized fishing accessories hadn’t changed in ages. His entrepreneurial spirit nudged him to start making the improvements that fishermen were in dire need of.
Since day one, EGO’s superior product design, functionality and available features have differentiated them among the many competitors churning out accessory products for anglers. Their flagship product, the EGO S2 Slider landing net, is a favorite among anglers who appreciate the weight, ease of use and extreme extension capabilities.
What started with nets has now grown into a full-blown product lineup of fishing tools and accessories designed to meet specific angler applications, including dry bags, grips, culling beams, tackle box backpacks and more. In 2016 the EGO Kryptek product series was launched featuring the popular, high-tech Kryptek camo technology.
It’s no surprise that EGO Fishing is a recurring winner of “Best in Show” at international events like ICAST – fishing products are just plain better when they’re Tested in Idaho.
