If it's true then it will be interesting Chris.

Jarden owns Pure Fishing which has the better known brands of Berkley, Shakespeare, Penn...

Any acquiror would be silly to mess with the brand. Production location is a different story however...

Sounds like the announcement (if true) will be timed with the IFTD show

Thanks Chris,
After your post I did a quick search and found nothing on this. I'm optimistic about this based on my dealings with Pure Fishing. They already have a host of leading brands that all operate somewhat independently under the PF heading. If there's a company in the industry that will appreciate the history and legend of Hardy, it's Pure Fishing. I say give this a chance, it could be awesome.
