The KastKing company got its start in the summer of 2011 when a couple of buddies from Syracuse University took a break from their studies. They spent their summer young and broke, enjoying the great outdoors as much as possible. The friends spent a lot of time in upstate New York on the Finger Lakes.

They fished. They felt that fishing was the best way to capture everything nature had to offer. They loved it; they were having fun. The young men were using borrowed fishing gear, but that didn't matter. They had high hopes for successful catches. They just enjoyed their time at the lakes, fishing. They spend their time on their fishing trips talking about their dreams and what they wanted to do with their lives after college.

Finally, summer was over, and it was time to go back to school. That is when the guys really started to think about it. Between them they the education and training they needed in finance. They were knowledgeable in e-commerce, technology, supply chain management, enterprise systems, and manufacturing practices. Why wouldn't they use all their knowledge to create a fishing company?
