World renowned lure designer Patrick Sébile is giving anglers a final chance to invest in his company, A Band of Anglers.
The man with a record 24 industry awards to his name is providing the unique opportunity to join his Band as a shareholder through crowdfunding platform, StartEngine.
“This is the first time ever that individuals can become shareholders in a fishing tackle company,” says Sébile.
“After two difficult years because of COVID, I am looking for investors to help ABOA get on the path to growth in 2023 and beyond in the US and international markets. To achieve that I need your support now.
“I am not looking for ABOA to be just one line in your investment portfolio, but to be the special one, as you have skin in the game – you love fishing. That is why I founded ABOA, and I want us to succeed as a company that sticks to its name and values with integrity.
“To make this happen I need support from people who are passionate about fishing, believe in what I am doing and are willing to support this adventure to develop the business successfully.”
More than 250 anglers and retailers have signed on as investors since the campaign was launched, raising over $300,000.
In a 35-year career Sébile has worked for a range of brands including Mepps, Mister Twister, Spiderwire and Penn. His own brand, Sebile, won worldwide acclaim before being acquired by Pure Fishing in 2010 and he spent more than seven years with the industry leader before launching ABOA in 2018.
