Inspired by Our Home

Growing up on the North Shore of Massachusetts we were blessed to have the Atlantic as our backyard. We grew up at the beach, and fishing has been a hobby since childhood. Rock-hoppers from day 1, we set out for Stripers and Blues, in various locations along the craggy coast of Cape Ann. Thirty years later we still have the same love for fishing, the Atlantic, and our hometown island of Cape Ann. So, we decided to share the love and Tight Lines was born: A fishing-focused lifestyle brand that we hope to use as a platform to advocate for our Ocean and all it has to offer. Champions of sustainable fishing practices (like catch and release) we aim to further connect our community to Nature and also explore fishing as a therapeutic activity for children and adults alike.

We are excited to share with you our premier line of apparel, which we carefully selected to ensure the highest quality, comfort and performance. 

A portion of our profits will be donated to help protect the Ocean and species (Striped Bass) we appreciate so much. 

To us, this is less a business and more an opportunity to connect the fishing community, to share the great-quality apparel we wear ourselves, and share our love for our beautiful home here on Cape Ann. 

Thank you for your support;  We are so humbled and blessed!
