About Us

Greetings from “Capt. Kokaneemart” and welcome to Kokaneemart.com! I recently took over the reins of Kokaneemart from one of my best friends, fishing buddies, and Kokaneemart.com founder, Ric Brown. I intend to provide the same quality products, services, and resources that Ric has provided to Kokanee fishermen over the years. Continuing the same great tradition that Ric provided, you can depend on very competitive prices and friendly, efficient service.

Kokanee are one of the most challenging, sport-worthy fish you can get on a hook. I have tried endless combinations of dodgers, lures, weights, rods, baits, and techniques to net one of these intriguing and often frustrating fish. Landing one of these feisty, fresh water sockeye salmon after the “good fight” is the ultimate in fishing satisfaction.

My goal is to assist you in being a successful Kokanee fisherman by offering you the highest quality tackle personally made or recommended by top Kokanee fishermen and guides. Along with time-tested and proven tackle, I am offering exciting new items as they become available. Exclusive Kokaneemart.com lures developed using my own experience and knowledge, are also being offered. I will continue to find the most effective new products from small garage manufacturers as well as the big household names so that Kokaneemart keeps them on the leading edge of evolving kokanee tackle. Take your time browsing and don’t hesitate to ask questions. I’m more than happy to assist you.

Kokaneemart is not just a place to purchase fine fishing tackle. It is also a forum to share your own experiences, ideas, photos, and videos in the pursuit of this great fish. Recipes are welcome, too! Delectable is the only word that comes to mind when eating the day’s catch so please post your favorite recipe.

In the short time since I took over Kokaneemart.com, I have been honored to receive the following reviews:

I ordered some lures today at about 3:00pm, Gary delivered them personally to my house at 6:00pm!! How great is that!! We all know how fantastic Ric was, Gary is fantastic! Talk about customer service! I still can't believe it! Gary also bs'd with me for quite awhile, even after he fished all day and you could tell he was worn out. I think Kokaneemart is in Great Hands! Thanks Gary! I am very grateful and impressed. Heck of a nice guy too!!

As a businessman, as well as a fisherman, I understand the value of friendly, honorable customer service. If for any reason you are dissatisfied with a purchase or the service you receive, please don’t hesitate to contact me.

Best of luck and good fishing!
