Made in Colorado: SaraBella Fishing

Fishing is usually a quiet sport, until you start thinking about the gear and how it's all made. From wood work, to wrapping thread, to sewing the bags that hold it all together, SaraBella Fishing has a hand in every step of the process.

Made in Colorado...and perfect for the things Coloradans love to do.

SaraBella Fishing creates custom rods, and really focuses on getting more women into the fly fishing world.

SaraBella also has a "survivor team" of employees, made up of veterans, a retired police detective and a male breast cancer survivor. They work with Mile High Workshop in Aurora on some of the production process, and oversee everything from the raw woodwork to the final product.

The company is named after the founders' dogs, Sara and Bella. There are 4 daughters between them, so this got rid of any jealousy or a really long company name. And yes, the dogs join in on family fishing trips!
