Fishing Tackle-Fishing Accessories-Custom Lures-Live Bait
Big Al's Company History
In 1957 my Dad broke his back and was unable to work, so being a strong willed man and loving the outdoors, both hunting and fishing, he started making fishing lures in his shop out back. He was a big man so everyone called him "Big Al". What started over 40 years ago as something to keep him busy turned into a "mom and pop" fishing tackle business in their home. My Dad passed away in 1993 and Mom continued the business on her own until she passed in 2006.
Fifty percent of all the fishing tackle is made by hand. My Dad wanted to make a quality product at a fair price and, most importantly, a product that would catch fish. In 2009 I made the move to continue the family business. I was named after my Dad and believe in the same values that he did. So the business is open and continues in the family tradition of producing quality fishing tackle, and now offers live bait.
Alvin C. Frye, Jr. (now known as Big Al)
We make custom hand made, hand tied, hand painted fishing lures. From melting the lead, to dotting the eyes, to tying the wires, it's all done by hand. All of these lures have been tested at local lakes, ponds and rivers and have proven to be effective, not only in catching fish, but also in their durability. A lot of the lures that I make cannot be found anywhere else and have been tested to master catching fish of all kinds and species. Another idea that I introduced into the company is home of "make your own lure". We carry my home made lures and other popular lures but you can make your own lure by selecting parts to be assembled into a color or style of your choice. We now also carry live bait and a selection of fishing accessories. The inventory changes month-to-month whenever I come up with new ideas for a different lure or accessory.
