I don’t know about you, but when it comes to fishing, I’m not shy about letting people know how I feel about the sport. I’ve got so many different bass fishing shirts, hats, hoodies and jackets I’m running out of space in my closest.
Recently we came across a company “Fishin Decals” who as their slogan states make “Awesome Decals for Avid Anglers”. They’re some of the most detailed images of game fish that I’d ever seen. The details on the largemouth and smallmouth bass are really spot on. These decals are designed to go on just about any flat surface, like cars, boats, kayaks, tackle boxes, mailboxes, etc. I got one of their largemouth and smallmouth bass decals (actual decals seen above). They look great on the window of my truck and my fishing buddies are asking where they can get some. They even have small decals that you can put on your fishing rods.
BASSIN’ USA: How long has your company been in business?
Fishin Decals: We just launched FishinDecals.com in July of 2015
BASSIN’ USA: Were the images used to make your decals created exclusively for your company, or are these images available through other companies too?
Fishin Decals: The artwork is 100% original. We've worked with some amazing artist to get each fish proportionally and visually as close to the real thing as possible. Our decals are only available at a few select resellers.
BASSIN’ USA: Can the adhesive used to stick onto cars, boats, etc. damage the paint or finish?
Fishin Decals: The adhesive is pretty dang tough. It will stick on to any hard, clean surface. Cars, boats, kayaks, tackle boxes, mailboxes, etc. The adhesive is paint safe but that being said it's very strong and the bond will become stronger over time.
BASSIN’ USA: How easily can these be removed from a car, boat, wall, etc. when they’ve been on for several months?
Fishin Decals: If you need to reposition the decal you'll want to do so within the first few minutes of application. If you'd like to remove the decal -- peel slowly and it should come right up.
BASSIN’ USA: What sizes are they available in and do you ever plan to offer larger sizes?
Fishin Decals: The sizes of the decals are specific to the unique proportions of the fish for the moment never exceed 3 inches in height or 8 inches in width. We're playing with the idea of larger decals. But we've also got some smaller "rod" decals which are pretty cool.
Fishin Decals: One of our primary focuses is getting decals for more game fish. We think it’s really important that the angler can show which fish they love to catch so we're working hard to create decals for as many species as possible. Both freshwater and saltwater fish, even some exotic or invasive species. People can make suggestions to us HERE.
We're also rolling out a few new styles of decals that include more "action" shots of the fish jumping or chasing lures. And we've also got a few chrome decals in the works for largemouth bass and salmon.
So far my decals have been out in the elements for over a month and they still look new. They have a wide selection of species to choose from for both salt and fresh water.
