About Redbone® Performance Salt Tackle:
Redbone® Performance is an affordable line of high performance rods, and premium saltwater accessories to meet the specific needs for any saltwater fishing application; inshore, back country, offshore or blue water.
The original Redbone rods were created in the late 90's when life-long fishing guide Gary Ellis partnered with Big Game International and lent his expertise to help develop the best value in saltwater fishing – the Redbone® rod series. Previously Gary and his wife Susan, had created the Redbone™ Celebrity Tournament Series, to help fund and find a cure for Cystic Fibrosis, their infant daughter having been diagnosed with the disease. A portion of the sales of each Redbone® rod goes to benefit CF research and the high quality and great value of the rod series has helped it become the go-to choice for charter boat captains and avid saltwater anglers alike. www.redboneperformance.com
