The company is made up of people who love fly-fishing and the outdoors. They also have a great respect for our natural world.
The founding members, Vince, Dennis, and Ken, had known each other for many years and, in fact, worked for different companies that competed against each other. They were brought together each year by a mutual supplier to fly fish in Montana. Interestingly enough, it was the sport of fly-fishing brought them together and led to them becoming great friends.
During one of their trips, and after a long day of fishing, they were enjoying dinner and discussing the day’s events. The topic moved to floatants and how most of the products on the market were either harmful to the environment, didn’t work, or both. They thought they could make better products than what was available.
One of the unique aspects to of High N Dry team is that two of their founding members were brilliant professional chemists with inquisitive minds. Between them they have over 100 U.S. patents. Vince has since passed away, but Ken is still very busy improving the existing products and testing new products to put on the market.
