Boomerang Tool Company and Friends of Reservoirs Launch National Fishing Habitat Program

Help improve fishing across the country with the best tool for cutting braided, mono and fluorocarbon fishing line!

MOUNTAIN VIEW, CA—Boomerang Tool Company® and the Friends of Reservoirs (FOR) have entered into a strategic partnership to improve fishing across the nation. You can help protect and restore fish habitats in our nation’s reservoir systems with the Friends of Reservoirs non-profit foundation with your purchase of a unique Boomerang SNIP that cleanly cuts mono and braided line quickly and easily. Equipped with an LED light for dusk and night duty and a handy retractable line, these snips are indispensable for any fisherman. The SNIP line cutters with LED Light that will benefit the Friends of Reservoirs non-profit foundation are available in blue or gray.

The special SNIP line-cutter with LED Light that benefits the Fishing Habitat Program is available now at:

Healthy aquatic habitats are essential ecologic and economic components of "quality of life" for the American people. The health of our nation’s reservoirs is threatened by losses of fish habitat, siltation, improper shoreline development, and other stressors.  Building new reservoirs is difficult due to economic and environmental issues, so there is a need to protect and restore existing reservoirs so that our grandchildren can enjoy the quality of life that we all want for them.

According to Dan Cornell, co-Founder and President of Boomerang Tool Company, the opportunity to partner with the Friends of Reservoirs foundation was a great way to help with the effort to improve fishing across the country by assisting them with their fundraising.  “We are enthusiastic about this opportunity to work with the Friends of Reservoirs to help expand the fish habitat improvement programs.  Our unique fishing tools like The Snip, which cuts through braid and monofilament better than anything on the market, will help make fishing better for many across the country. This is an opportunity for Boomerang Tool Company, working with the Friends of Reservoirs foundation and their partners, to make a significant impact on fishing nationwide.”

Jeff Boxrucker, Reservoir Fisheries Habitat Partnership coordinator, said "I'm excited about launching this joint fundraising program with our partners at Boomerang Tool Company. We’ve seen declines in reservoir fish habitats across our country and a need to bring people together to  solve these problems.  The Friends of Reservoir Foundation welcomes the Boomerang Tool Company as a new business partner in this effort.  Through this program, we will generate funds to support fish habitat improvement projects that will improve fish populations, fishing opportunities, and water quality for millions of people nationwide.  The Friends of Reservoirs foundation is proud to help with the protection and restoration of fish habitat in our nation’s reservoir systems.  In the coming years, I look forward to the expansion of this program for the benefit of the fishing habitats and anglers across the country."
