We are Warbird Fishing Gear, founded and established in Islamorada, Florida in 2011. The Florida Keys is not only the headquarters of our business but it is in our blood. The Warbird family grew up fishing these waters, our families and friends live here, and we will raise our children and grandchildren on these islands.
The Keys took a huge impact from Hurricane Irma in a way that has deeply affected us as a company. From Key Largo to Key West it is going to take a long time for the businesses and families affected by this storm to get back on their feet. Fishing boat captains have lost their boats, marinas have been destroyed, small shops devastated, and many bars and restaurants closed indefinitely.
We realize our brothers and sisters of the Florida Keys need help and Warbird Fishing Gear wants to do everything we can. This is why we have decided as a company that we are going to donate 100% of net proceeds on all Warbird Fishing Gear sales to the Florida Keys.*
The Florida Keys is an incredibly strong community which will face adversity head on. Warbird Fishing Gear is committed to helping the Florida Keys rebuild stronger than ever! #KEYSSTRONG
- David and Kyle Tuthill, Founders.
*We will do this through the Warbird Keys Strong Relief Fund. This is a 501c3 foundation that distributes funds based on short term immediate relief and via longer term efforts in conjunction with the Islamorada Charter Boat Association.
