Welcome Aboard!


We would like to welcome the following companies on board as new members of the BBT Family



About 10 years ago we began crafting punch skirts for personal use and soon started playing around with different jig styles. Before long we began making both of these items for friends, family, and fellow anglers. As our passion flourished and product line continued to develop, we wanted to share our creations with the public. Then in April 2016, Canopy Grenades was born.

In todays market, it's rare to find a company that can keep up quality through mass production. That's why Canopy Grenades chooses to continue making all of our products to order. We fashion every one of our pieces by hand. All of the jigs and rattling punch skirts we make are wire-tied to ensure strength and offer better durablity. We know how tough those bass can be and we want to help you catch those big donkeys.


For those times when you just can't find exactly what you want, we offer customization on all of our made to order products. At Canopy Grenades we encourage creativity and are happy to work with you to find that perfect color combination to get those fish biting.

At FINS, we have made many choices. For years we chose to use our braiding expertise to manufacture braids for others who marketed superlines. Over the years we chose to offer these customers value added services to improve the performance of braided Spectra lines. We developed expertise in coloring, coating, and other post-processing techniques needed to make Spectra fiber lines user friendly. Along the way we have worked closely with many brand managers for numerous corporations and small companies alike, not to mention many dozens of fishing guides and pro staff anglers. Our product line of FINS situation braids are a natural evolution to our experiences and capabilities.

Our experience has shown us no single style of superline will be universally liked. That's why we developed our line-up of situational braids to offer anglers a choice depending on their situation and personal preferences. FINS offers five styles of fishing superlines, each one produced with genuine spectra fibers and manufactured in our plant located in Kentucky. We at FINS have chosen to research and design the finest braided superlines possible. We hope you will give them a try and join the team.

Dave Burch, Braidman

President, FINS LLC
