Our company is made up of people who love fly-fishing and the outdoors. We also have a great respect for our natural world. 

Our founding members, Vince, Dennis, and Ken, had known each other for many years and, in fact, worked for different companies that competed against each other. They were brought together each year by a mutual supplier to fly fish in Montana.  Interestingly enough, it was the sport of fly-fishing brought them together and led to them becoming great friends. 

During one of their trips, and after a long day of fishing, they were enjoying dinner and discussing the day’s events.  The topic moved to floatants and how most of the products on the market were either harmful to the environment, didn’t work, or both.  They thought they could make better products than what was available.

Thus, High N Dry Fishing Products, LLC was born.

We established three objectives for this new venture:

  • Make the best products available
  • Have fun
  • Sell our new HnD products on a world-wide basis

One of the unique aspects to of High N Dry team is that two of our founding members were brilliant professional chemists with inquisitive minds.  Between them they have over 100 U.S. patents.  Vince has since passed away, but Ken is still very busy improving our existing products and testing new products to put on the market. 

The first step for the founders was to scientifically evaluate all available products. Over time they noticed that the performance of the existing floatants was poor and most were solvent based, flammable, and environmentally unfriendly.  They paid close attention to the design approach, materials used, and performance of each product.  Armed with this information, the team was able to develop the most advanced, highest performing, solvent free products available.  We take great pride in the quality of the materials we used and our approach has always been focused on making sure our products perform better than all the others. 

Although this was a lot of hard work, it has been rewarding and we sincerely hope you enjoy fishing the High N Dry way!
