Excellence. Tradition. Reputation. Eagle Claw and it’s Wright&Mcgill products share these accolades with Aikens Lake Wilderness Lodge. No surprise that these two industry pioneers partner to showcase World-class equipment on World-class waters. Throughout the past two years, Aikens Lake Lodge and Eagle Claw’s head office in Colorado have been swapping trade secrets to design a signature line of rods specifically designed to answer the North American walleye fisher-person’s needs.
First Phase: test the prototypes on Aikens Lake in 2011. Done. Drawing board revisited. Pros were consulted. Tony Roach, Walleye fisherman supreme, signs off on a brand-new line of sticks designed with the quality and performance focused angler in mind. Spring 2012 product release date to be announced.
Phase two: Aikens has now hosted a group from Eagle Claw and has revamped it’s stock in the Bait & Tackle shop to showcase the many new America-made fishing products available through Eagle Claw. Also, we’ve developed an Aikens Lake Signature telescoping 7′ bait casting rod designed for trolling and bottom-bouncing and a pair will be in every guide boat. The prototype is here and is sweet!Match that with a Skeet Reese Baitcasting reel and you’re all set for huge Walleyes on Aikens at any point in the season.
Phase three: you, the end-user of both companies’ products gets to benefit from these top-tier wares and fares.
This working relationship has garnered much steam in the two years of it’s existence. Let’s just see what’s next!
