How it all started

It all started when my friend Charlie kept borrowing my electric reels and returning them in disrepair. I knew I could make a better electric reel and this inspired me to build my own. So I began to design, engineer and develop what was to later become the “Hooker Electric”. It all happened in a small shed at home with no AC and a conventional small lathe and mill.

Blue Boat and the Hooker Electric PrototypeThree variants emerged from that effort while continuously improving on design and its components to improve on performance. It didn’t happen overnight, but it surely was fun. Taking feedback from fellow anglers and respected charter captains, we kept developing the reel to accommodate all the requirement and demands of the fishing industry.

The Hooker Electric fishing reel that you see today is the product that emerged. When I completed the first “home-made” prototype, it amazed me. It also impressed my friends and fellow anglers. I never expected the performance that it put in front of us once we ran a series of tests. The Hooker Electric proved to be lighter, more compact but also faster than the competitors. This means that an angler, could retrieve the bait from the bottom, setup and send that bait back to the bottom quicker. The Hooker Electric truly performs as nicely as it looks.

As an avid fisherman and fellow angler, I am proud to offer you the Hooker Electric, a reel like no other, that will give you an extra edge over the competition.
