FishUSA®, America’s Tackle Shop®, has announced the addition of Jackson Kayak to its expanding line of fishing kayak and kayak accessories, with the product now available for purchase online at www. and in the company’s Fairview, Pennsylvania Pro Shop.

“As we worked more closely with their team, it became clear that their commitment to independent retailer success is truly unique, and our companies share a common understanding that this sales channel is not only the backbone of the fishing industry, but also a catalyst in driving innovation and growth,” stated Jeff Parnell, FishUSA’s President and CEO. “In addition, their view of omnichannel retail is that the customer experience should be consistent across all retail channels–and we could not agree more.”

According to Doug Straub, FishUSA’s Senior Director of Merchandising and Marketing, “We’re thrilled to be adding Jackson Kayaks to the FishUSA offering. Our initial shipment has just arrived, and with the addition of Jackson, we believe that we have the best fishing kayak selection in the country. This partnership takes us another step forward to bridge the gap between paddlesports and fishing tackle.”

Doug Ragan, Jackson’s Vice President of Sales, is also enthusiastic about this new strategic opportunity. “Jackson Kayak is very excited to have FishUSA as a partner. They love the sport, as does Jackson, and treat customers like family. We look forward to doing great things together!”
