Time to get outside

Published 4:54 pm Saturday, April 7, 2012

Spring is here and we all can’t wait to get outside. This week at the center we are having a couple of fun and exciting events that will make you want to get outside.

Travis Stayton from the Home of the Brave Outdoors is going to join us on April 11th at 9:00am. He will be showcasing his unique fishing lure designs and will have lures available for you to purchase.

“I’ve been in business since 2008, I’ve sold at least one lure in each direction of the compass in the United States. My work has also been recognized by people such as Babe Winkleman, Paul Jr. Designs, and recently by Benny Spies from the tv show Gun It, and Shannon “Lefty” Larsen of the NBC Sports Show Lip Em N Rip Em along with their same name radio show found on milehiradio.com, which I will be advertising with soon, all based in Colorado. I’ve also picked up Prostaff members along the way. One from Minnesota (Austin), Georgia, Colorado, and California. I send them lures that are already for sale on my website, along with prototype lures I need tested in different regions of the country. Three of the for Prostaff members are currently serving in Law Enforcement and the United States Army. My most popular selling lures now are the DragonFly, and Special Water Assault Tackle lures.”
