Our Commitment

Dave SteeleFor 28 years I’ve operated my business on the simplest of principles, a premise defined by congeniality, honesty and a commitment to service. For close to three decades I’ve successfully conducted business utilizing a philosophy that embraces explanation and the provision of choice. I’m of the belief that within the parameters of educated advice and applicable product it is the job of any sales person to provide a range of alternatives, choices that represent a scope of quality and a range of price points. Though it may seemingly contradict the entrepreneurial code, I have little interest in over-selling or challenging the budgetary allowance of anyone. As a provider of tackle our success is bases on consumer well being and satisfaction. When said commitment is exercised shop success is a given. Admittedly our mandate is selfish, by earning your trust we hope to create an enduring rapport, a relationship characterized by longevity and mutual growth. The more we understand your needs the better we’ll become at delivering customized service. Highwater Tackle sells a broad variety of quality products, a line of products we proudly stand behind. Though warranties vary with respect to scope and degree of liability, rest assured that our staff will work arduously to keep you in the game. As fishermen we understand the urgency of being without.
