For more than 50 years, the AFTCO name has stood for quality and dependability, backed by a family-owned company that ranks among the world’s most highly regarded saltwater fishing tackle manufacturers.
That long earned reputation now applies to AFTCO Clothing. Our M01 and M01L shorts are known worldwide for their ability to hold up and clean up in the most extreme fishing conditions. Our new AFTCO board shorts offer not only the functionality demanded by the serious angler, but also the “California Cool” factor that younger anglers are looking for. The AFTCO Clothing focus is on performance. Features on our fishing shirts, pants, jackets, sandals, gloves, sun masks, hats and even underwear, will make that focus obvious after just one trip on the boat wearing AFTCO. AFTCO’s conservation ethic is real and not just a marketing ploy, as is so common in today’s business world. It evolved through former company Chairman, Milt Shedd’s longtime involvement in ocean resource projects. Milt, the founding Board Chairman of Sea-World, Inc., passed in 2002, but his marine stewardship tradition is carried on by the staff of AFTCO. Bill Shedd, company President and CEO, contributes well over 500 hours a year providing leadership for the sportfishing community and ocean conservation efforts.
