Lee’s Tackle, Inc., is a fourth generation, family owned and operated business that began in 1920 when Edward J. Lee opened a retail fishing store in Miami, Florida. In the mid 1930s, motivated by his love of fishing and his passion for innovation, Roswell E. Lee, Sr., began manufacturing big game fishing reels, rod holders and fighting chairs. His innovative designs revolutionized the sport fishing industry. He was the first to use aluminum tubing in the fabrication of outriggers. He also designed and patented the fishing rod Roller Top. Today, most of his designs are still in production.
Over the years, Lee’s has continued to introduce exciting new products to the world of salt water sport fishing. Our product line has expanded to include over 46 distinct rod holder models, 8 styles of outrigger holders, outrigger poles from 11 to 46 feet in length, as well as, many other miscellaneous sport fishing products. Lee’s Tackle leads the sport fishing industry with innovative ideas and precision engineering. Our designs continue to be the most copied throughout the industry.
