AFTCO stands for the American Fishing Tackle Company and was established in 1958 in Newport Beach, California by J.C. Axelson, a pioneer in big game tackle development. In 1973, Milt Shedd (a legendary innovator, himself) and wife Peggie purchased AFTCO, and a new company evolved with a concern for both the fishing customer and marine resources. In 1974, son Bill Shedd joined the company, and in 1989 he started the AFTCO Clothing Division, with the introduction of what became the world’s finest fishing shorts. In 1999, the company began a relationship with Guy Harvey by manufacturing and distributing “all over print” shirts incorporating Guy’s art. Then, in 2004, Guy officially partnered with the company for the manufacture and distribution of all Guy Harvey sportswear, including the immensely popular Guy Harvey T-Shirts. In 2007, they partnered with world famous wildlife artist, Al Agnew, to produce and distribute a line of clothing for the fresh water angler and those who appreciate inland game and wildlife.
For more than 50 years, the AFTCO name has stood for quality and dependability, backed by a family-owned company that ranks among the world’s most highly regarded saltwater fishing tackle manufacturers. AFTCO’s Roller Guides and Roller Tops, Unibutts, Taper Tip Gaffs, Roller Troller Outrigger Clips, Fighting Belts and Harnesses, Fishing Gloves and more, are found on top sport fishing boats worldwide.
