Reel Lamps was created in December of 2012 by Chet Nosalik. Chet wanted to create something unique that captured the attention of fishing enthusiasts around the country. The idea came to him in his own garage while building rod holders for an upcoming fishing show. After playing with the idea for a while the first original Reel Lamp was created. These lamps are created from landfill-bound fishing gear, broken reels, old lures, disposed of granite and snapped rods. This is a perfect example of the Old Saying " One mans trash is another mans treasure" The company's creativity continues to amaze Anglers around the country.
