F i s h s p e a r i t, I n c. is a small American business owned and operated by Andy Lowe and Star Droshine in South Florida. Together they began working on the concept of a more useful polespear 12 years ago while operating a dive charter business in the Caribbean. After creating a successful prototype and setting up production, the business officially took off, launching their website, Foldspear.com, in 2003. Ten years, and thousands of happy customers later, they crafted an improved Foldspear and launched a new website, to serve their customers better. Potential dealers can reach the owners using the contact information on this site.
