AFTCO is a fishing company founded on fishing....what a relief.
Three generations of the Shedd family have shared their passion for fishing with each other and created family bonds in pursuit of this noble activity. From AFTCO's front office to its warehouse, this is truly a company with fishing in its blood. Many of them will share their stories here.
Milt and son Bill Shedd crushing big tuna.
Milt and grandson Casey, continuing the tradition.
And that's what this contest is all about. Inspired by one of BD's own, Creative Director, Derek Redwine. He shared this story with Bill Shedd at ICAST earlier this year:
Derek was taking his 3 day old son, Alden, home from the hospital with his best friend Scott (Current BD Editor). His wife had stopped for lunch with her mom and a much needed short break from the baby. Meanwhile, Derek and Scott heard the snook were biting at the bridge, so they stopped to check it out on the way home. I'm pretty sure the photo tells the rest of the story. Oddly enough, both Derek and Scott were wearing AFTCO shorts and the early start of Aldens fishing career has stuck. At 13 year old, Alden is now one of the youngest members of AFTCOs pro staff program.
Derek still had hair and Scott had a sick mustache (Must have been November). And that's exactly what this contest is all about.....
Let's hear your best fishing memory and why it's special to you. AFTCO related or not, that's not the point. Fishing brings us all closer together and creates memories that last a lifetime.
