Founded by Florida Native, Ty Nelson, and long-time friend, Tim Sommer, in Spring 2016, Florida Fishing Products™ has already become one of the premier brands on the market. They have set forth a vision to develop the best spinning reels, give back to the community, and fight for healthy estuaries. 

“Being involved in the Florida fishing community for our entire lives, we noticed that many of the larger companies in the industry had no interest in supporting local anglers and guides, or taking a stand for preserving the waters WE all love to fish. We are setting the bar higher when it comes to developing fishing reels, giving back to the community, and of course getting our hands dirty when it comes to fighting for healthy estuaries. It is our mission and vision, and we are determined to see it through. The tides are turning,” said Ty Nelson.

The Florida Fishing Products™ Osprey Spinning Reel has a sub $200.00 price point. It is ideal for fishing for Florida’s most sought-after inshore gamefish.
