...Luhr Jensen & Sons has been an industry icon for many years. The company was recently sold ('06) to Rapala, a Finnish company with manufacturing and distribution facility's world-wide. It is now my desire to assist the HOOD RIVER COUNTY HISTORICAL MUSEUM to build a new and larger facility where the history of our North West fishing can be celebrated and enjoyed by the interested public. but, I need more information~! I need your help~!
Hi~! ...my name is Phil Jensen. I am the 3rd and youngest son of Luhr Jensen, Sr. I have been active in our family business all my life. Together with my brothers Luhr Jr, and David, we have been "in charge" of LJ & Sons since our father retired in 1950. (see Family History if you desire).
Luhr Jensen (the company) has enjoyed many successes in the past 50 years, expanding it's sales and area's of influence by the addition of many venerable companies, ...almost to many to mention. Northwest companies such as LES DAVIS, GLEN L. EVANS, MAXWELL, ABE'N AL, PINK LADY, and many more have been added to the "Legends of Luhr Jensen" over the years.
I have the needed information regarding these companies, but my desire, ...is to publish a reference book that includes the industry notables from the manufacturers, the industry reps, the jobber salesmen, the important retailers as well as influential guides and fishermen that have been a part of our industry and fishing history for so many years. PLEASE HELP ME~! I am anxious to hear from you and I can be reached at firstname.lastname@example.org or by telephone at (541) 386-3647 (Hood River) or at (760) 904-6395 in the winter months (California). I promise to answer and I can tell fishing stories and lies with the best of 'em~! ...e-mail me, ...or call. Do it today~!!!
