Pure Fishing Acquires Sebile Lure Business

Pure Fishing, Inc., a leading global provider of fishing tackle and a wholly-owned subsidiary of Jarden Corporation, announced that it has acquired substantially all of the assets of the Sebile fishing lure business from Sebile International SA and its subsidiaries, a global supplier of fresh and saltwater fishing lures marketed under the Sebile® brand name.


"We are excited to add Sebile lures to our offering, as they provide a strong complement to our current product lines," commented John Doerr, President and CEO of Pure Fishing. "Sebile's award winning products, paired with our global distribution network, creates a powerful combination. We look forward to working with Patrick Sebile to ensure that Pure Fishing stays at the forefront of delivering innovation to anglers around the globe."

Sebile® lures are well recognized by the fishing tackle industry and anglers world-wide. The brand has distinguished itself in the industry as the only brand to ever win, in a single year, both the Best Hard Lure and Best Soft Lure awards at ICAST (USA - 2009), three awards at EFTTEX (Europe -2010), and four awards at AFTA (Australia - 2010).

"Our goal was not to start just another lure business but to provide anglers around the globe with a new and unique range of lures borne from innovative concepts and ideas," stated Patrick Sebile. "Joining the Pure Fishing team will dramatically expand our opportunities for global growth. I am very excited to have Sebile become a part of Pure Fishing's portfolio of industry leading brands."

Mr. Sebile, the namesake of the Sebile® brand, started his lure business in 2006. He has fished in sixty-three countries around the world, has caught over 600 species of fish, and has compiled 327 IGFA, EFSA and FFPM records.
