PEETZ was founded in Victoria, British Columbia, in 1925 by Boris Cecil Peetz, a master jeweler who combined his love of fishing with his ability to fashion timeless, beautiful works of art. Today, PEETZ fishing reels continue to stand the test of time. Still crafted in Victoria, the reels are produced in limited numbers by hand using traditional methods. These fishing reels carry a special place of distinction in the hearts and tackle boxes of many West Coast fishermen. They are timeless works of functional art to be used, abused and shared as lasting legacies of a family’s enduring passion for the sport of fishing.

Creator Andrew Paine crafts these lures by hand in Victoria, BC. His father and grandfather first started teaching him to tie flies at the age of eight. According to Andrew, he created some rather interesting flies. But as ugly as they were, they did catch fish and that sparked a lifetime of interest in tackle and innovation in the realm of fishing. These days he spends as much time as possible making tackle and being with his family on the water testing gear and enjoying all that the Salish Sea has to offer.
