Lyle and Ramirez run Outdoor Specialty Products and represent Sage, Redington, and RIO in addition to fishpond in the fly fishing space for California, Arizona, Hawaii and Nevada.
We know the quality of the people behind fishpond and their commitment to design innovation, quality product, reliable supply, and resource stewardship, so we are excited to be working with such an innovative and authentic brand, says Jamie Lyle.
