As Bank Lending Trickles, Fishing Gear Company Tackles Crowdfunding

Classic fishing tackle entrepreneur is generating new product funding by "rewarding" project backers with first run units of a new line of bamboo casting rods.

Headwaters Bamboo Rod Company, a maker of classic bamboo fishing rods, is thrilled to announce the launch of a new line of bamboo casting rods thanks to the innovative crowdfunding platform at In a down banking climate where many small businesses have little access to capital to grow, Headwaters is finding a way to fund new product introductions.

Headwaters is working with, a new way to fund entrepreneurs. This concept, called "crowdfunding," is an online platform that allows business owners to raise capital from their "peers"-in small increments-in exchange for tangible rewards.

The process is simple-Headwaters "rewards" project backers with an early edition bamboo casting rod at a significant discount. This allows Headwaters to immediately engage manufacturing resources and start marketing to retail customers-the opportunity is a win/win situation for both the backer and for Headwaters.

"Funding on allows us to move forward with introducing new products" states a spokesman for Headwaters Bamboo Rod Company.

Headwaters is in its tenth year of providing well-respected bamboo fly fishing rods at affordable prices. Conventional anglers will now enjoy the beauty and elegance of a bamboo rod with the introduction of this new line of casting rods.
