The Full Story
It's really all about being outside in the elements. Kids in bare feet on the shore or in the boat. Breathing in that fresh lake air. That perfect sound when your line hits the water. That feeling of docking the boat on the sand while you break for a bit before heading back out again. A hike to your favourite quiet place to cast for a while. There's no place like home and there's nothing else like fishing.
Summer of 2021, I was sitting at the table with my wife and our kids when the idea of 'Hooked Up Fishing Gear' was born. I recall saying "Spruce Grove doesn't have a fishing store. We should open one!" Just 8 weeks later we had finalized the purchase of our store-front and began the building process.
I've had many ideas in my lifetime, but this one really felt 'right'. There are so many young families in the greater Parkland County area and as a local community resident of 15 years and a father of 4 who enjoys fishing with my family, I really wanted to provide the option for other families to do the same. I want this store to give you more time for adventures by eliminating the grand trek into the city to stock up on supplies for an afternoon by the shore.
So whether you've discovered us on GCFS for the first time or happen to be in Spruce Grove, Alberta, come see what we have to offer. We look forward to providing you with the right supplies for your next trip to the lake!
