As a leading online retailer of fishing tackle, FishUSA boasts a unique history.
FishUSA, as it is known today, traces its roots to Erie.net, launched in 1994 as Northwest Pennsylvania’s first internet service provider. In 1998, FishUSA’s owner, an avid angler, oversaw Erie.net’s launch of FishErie.com, the first website and forums for anglers in the region.
Erie.net was sold in 1999, and FishUSA’s chairman kept FishErie in operation. In 2000, FishUSA - one of the first “pure” internet retailers of fishing tackle - was launched.
From the outset, FishUSA stocked the products it sold, and provided complete customer service and support. It also developed strong ties to the fishing industry, including tackle manufacturers, distributors, pro and amateur anglers, angler groups and stakeholders.
FishUSA offers anglers an extensive choice of popular and specialized fishing products, competitive prices, fast delivery, fair shipping charges, product support by a staff of experienced anglers and superior customer service. We operate seven days a week, and ship orders six days a week, to better serve our customers. We are committed to the fishing industry and support organizations that enhance and promote fishing opportunities.
Now in its fifth location, FishUSA has grown from its grassroots origins into one of the nation’s leading online retailers of fishing tackle and related accessories. Currently, FishUSA’s spacious warehouse, offices and Pro Shop are located in Fairview, Pennsylvania, within the region’s “Steelhead Alley,” and a short distance from the shores of beautiful Lake Erie and Presque Isle Bay.
With a mission of being the nation's leading online supplier of sport fishing tackle and related products, FishUSA truly is America’s Tackle Shop!
