Frank Bryant, founder of Chota Outdoor Gear, has been fly fishing and paddling for over 50 years. Born in the “Lake Country” on the Indiana/Michigan line, Frank says … “My earliest memory is falling asleep in the bow of a cedar/canvas canoe while Dad fished the Hex hatch on Little Long.”
So when he designs a piece of equipment, rest assured that it’s innovative and comfortable. Frank takes great pleasure in personally testing each and every item. From the Boundary Waters of Minnesota to his home rivers around Knoxville, Frank is seldom away from the water. “One of my greatest pleasures in life is meeting people who are enjoying the use of Chota products while I am field testing (fly rod in hand, of course) a preproduction piece of gear.”
Chota insists on the finest materials and craftsmanship to assure the highest standards of quality. Every product is solidly backed with a no-nonsense warranty against defects. All of this explains why people who share Frank’s love of the outdoors appreciate Chota Outdoor Gear’s innovative, high quality line of products.
