Fishing Gear - Roll over product image for details

F&B Rubberized, Inc was created to use tire rubber in die-cut forms. The company became well known within the fishing industry for a variety of useful and indispensable parts. F&B product development is continuously evolving. This process is accomplished through the collaboration of nearby commercial fisherman. The boats' gear problems, particularly with wear, become opportunities. We are able to fashion inexpensive, rugged parts such as rollers and chaffing gear to help with their problems. Some parts are reproductions of manufactured parts, and some products are wholly new concepts distinguished with US patents.
