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.
