This design inspiration came from two things… a Sailfish and the fact that America is AWESOME! The American Flag is a celebrated symbol and a sailfish is a popular fish for many reasons. Sailfish are the true definition of a pelagic hunter. Found mostly from South Florida down into South America they get their name for a very obvious reason, making the design focus be the American flag on the fish’s sail. These fish are pack hunters often seen “balling” up bait schools on the edge of the reefs. With a long slender body and a forked tail the Sailfish is quick and powerful making it a popular tournament fish. They also are acrobats seen free jumping out of the water and skipping across the surface when hooked.
