About Old 18
This is who we are...
The name Old 18 refers to the 18 men who fired the first shot in the Texas Revolution—delaying Mexican attempts to reclaim the town’s cannon until militiamen from surrounding settlements could be summoned and inspiring the “Come and Take It” flag.
A NAVY SEAL and TOPGUN FIGHTER PILOT.
Old 18 was founded by a US Navy SEAL and a TOPGUN fighter pilot with this same fighting spirit and a single determination: to bring local business personality to a high-end brand. We offer superior fishing gear with the quality service and honesty of the corner shop. Combining this with a paradigm changing warranty and you get the customer experience that every American company should provide .
A smarter way of doing things.
We teamed up with industry expert and fishing mastermind Jake Brewer to launch our own line of rods that match the best on the market. By utilizing our own in-house high-quality craftsmanship, avoiding traditional retail channels, and engaging with customers directly, we’re able to offer the same rods as the industry’s best without the cold corporate attitude.

We believe that fishermen deserve more from their favorite brand. We want you to be treated the way that our families should be treated – with respect. In the spirit of the Old 18’s determination to right the wrong and face insurmountable odds, we invite you to join us in building the best fishing company in the country.
