Tru-Trip Deeper Diver from Big Fish Tuff

Dan Heyne, aka Painter Dan from Coldwater, Ohio, is an avid fisherman that wanted short leads for less tangles for deeper fish. He started Big Fish Tuff Tackle Company to launch his new product, the Tru-Trip Deep Diver.

With the rapid success of the Tru-Trip 40’s & 50’s, Big Fish Tuff went to work on a Tru-Trip 30, which will be available shortly.
