Since 1958, The American Fishing Tackle Company has had one goal: produce quality offshore fishing tackle and premium fishing gear. What started more than 50 years ago in a pioneer’s Newport Beach basement, turned machine shop, is now driven forward by a devoted group of Southern Californian saltwater fishing enthusiasts. As sport fishing has progressed, so have our products. Our line of saltwater fishing gear, with the cornerstone AFTCO roller guides and durable saltwater fishing shorts, has evolved into a complete line of saltwater fishing tackle and clothing.
In addition to AFTCO’s own line of offshore fishing equipment, AFTCO is the manufacturer of all Al Agnew and Guy Harvey shirts & apparel. With equal parts passion for deep sea fishing and concern for our ocean resources, the AFTCO and Guy Harvey clothing lines donate more than $350,000 each year to ocean conservation and fishing issues. From our big game fishing tackle to our performance offshore gear and clothing, AFTCO has long been both a foundation and a source of innovation for the fishing community.
