Jeff’s father, J.C. (pictured on the right), is credited with inventing the SwingBlade lure, an innovation that transformed the spinning bait industry. The U.S. Patent #US 8,857,009 B1 was granted for his invention. J.C., who has since passed away, was considered one of the greatest fishermen of all time.
Jeff established ReelSchematic in 1993 soon after he relocated to southern California. The company grew from his need to locate fishing reel schematics for his personal use, and before he knew it, he had the largest collection of fishing reel schematics in the world, which was later registered with the U.S. Library of Congress. Jeff sold copies of this collection to fishermen and repair shops all across the globe, which eventually led to a new line of research and development. After several years of hard work, Jeff launched NanoSlick Lubricants, which started as a specialized lubricant for fishing reels but eventually expanded into industries like marine, mining, excavation, construction, and firearms, among others.
