POSTLY, BADFISH, and The WADE ROD CO.
In today’s episode of Beyond the Buoy I speak with Brian Runnals the man behind popular fishing brands such as Postfly, Badfish, and The Wade Rod Co. Brian, a devoted fisherman set out create the ultimate fishing experience in a box. Starting in his basement he quickly grew that monthly subscription company, which now ships over 100,000 flies each month. Now, Brian has three brands dedicated to supplying anglers around the country with top-quality fishing gear, for all types of fishing. It’s an amazing company with a mission to break down the barriers typically associated with fishing, making it more affordable and accessible to all.
Meet Brian Runnals, avid fly fishermen, conservationist, family man, and entrepreneur.
Growing up in Massachusetts fishing was always apart of Brian's life. Brian and his Girlfriend, now wife, moved to San Fransisco as a way to get away and try something new shortly after college. While living in California, he got involved in a tech startup, but the itch to fish still remained.
Fast forward to 2013 and Brian decided to put together a subscription box to help people learn how to fly fish. Putting together boxes in his basement Brian put together the first eight boxes and the rest is history. Now, he runs three fishing related brands, Postfly, Badfish, Pelican Reels and the Wade Rod Co. all aimed at educating and inspiring others to fish!

Brian and his team have made it a point to give back to the community by creating the "Save the Season" initiative. The initiative aims to provide relief for fishing guides affected by the corona virus pandemic. Due to the virus many guides, charter boats, and other outfits have had to close shop for the time being. Through donations made through savetheseason.org and the sale of merchandise, you can help save the 2020 season.
