Washed Ashore Fishing is a small custom wood lure and custom fly company based out of Buzzards Bay, Massachusetts, focused on bringing surfcasters and fishermen the highest quality gear. As a lifelong resident, fishing and surfcasting has been a way of life I have grown up with in some of the world's premier Striped Bass fishing grounds.
In 2008 I began building plugs to try and beat the winter time cabin fever. I quickly fell in love with the hobby, obsessing over different weigh schemes and plug styles to entice Striped Bass and Bluefish. Today, my plugs are fished all across the United States for a variety of species.
Since 2008, many aspects and components of my lures have changed. What has remained the same is a painstaking attention to quality and durability. Having grown up fishing the Cape Cod Canal and the boulder fields of Buzzards Bay, it is important for a fisherman's lures to be able to take a beating against the rocks, and continue to swim and perform as intended. This is why each and every one of my lures is built with high quality cedar wood, epoxy heat sealed to maximize durability, and minimize damage caused by rocks and toothy gamefish. Through wired with 316 stainless steel wire and rigged with Kroc swivels, Wolverine 3x split rings, VMC 4x treble hooks, and nickel plated grommets, Washed Ashore plugs are designed to take any beating in the harsh conditions surfcasters are subject to.
