Meet Our Founder
The founder of a dream to have a performance fishing shirt that fits well and keeps you cool. Kent simply wants to stay on the water from sun up to sun down (and prefers not to fight elements of the sun or bugs). It’s really man versus nature out there.
Our journey began in February 2009 when he drew some chicken scratch on the back of a napkin. A simple mission to create gear that protects your skin from the elements and breathes like a fish. Now I stay cool, dry and protected for the whole day while I am competing in a tournament or fishing with my family.
It’s that simple.
--Kent Hickman, Gillz Founder
