Lower Fishing Tackle Loss With ReSink
A Reusable Fishing Sinker
ReSink is a reusable wire harness secured around rocks that will lower the high cost of fishing tackle loss. ReSink turns rocks commonly found along shorelines of creeks, streams, rivers and lakes throughout the Pacific Northwest into line weights for freshwater anglers. If the “ReSink rock” becomes stuck, the wire harness harmlessly breaks away leaving the rock where it lies. To continue fishing, simply reload the ReSink harness with a fresh rock and set your line. In addition to saving the cost of replacement lead line weights, ReSink keeps fresh waterways free of lead waste when conventional line weights are lost. In the words of Kimberly Hall, wife of ReSink inventor Garret Hall, “It’s conservation in every aspect. The fisher is conserving because you’re not losing gear – you keep the harness – and it’s better for the river and better for your wallet.”
The BTE Bootcamp™ Advantage
As the chance to start a business began to emerge during ReSink’s development and testing stages centered around something they were already passionate about, the Halls decided to attend the “Be The Entrepreneur Bootcamp™” (BTE Bootcamp™) in 2015. “Our idea, as a company, is to have outdoor gear that respects the stewardship of being in the outdoors., We need to have products that take care of us, and the outdoors, at the same time.” ReSink also allows anglers to remain fishing instead of pack up their gear and search for someplace to get replacement line weights when snags cause problems.
The connections, mentoring and presentations afforded at the BTE Bootcamp™ benefited the Halls greatly. Turning a small company into a full-time job is not something the Halls expected. “I cannot think of one reason someone shouldn’t go to the Bootcamp if they are thinking about opening anything more than a lemonade stand,” Kimberly said. “You’re going to learn things, whether you have a small or large business or even just want to learn about your personal finance.”
