Peter Leibman, Managing Director of Peak Rock Capital, said, "We are thrilled to have the opportunity to invest in the combination of the Lew's and Strike King brands.

I'd like to personally thank Lynn Reeves, Chairman of Lew's, for his help in introducing us to the Strike King management team."
PRADCO Outdoor Brands, manufacturer and marketer of fishing and hunting brands and products, has acquired War Eagle Custom Lures, formerly of Rogers, Arkansas.
War Eagle Custom Lures has operated in Rogers for the past 21 years. Keith Brashers started the company in his garage and built it into the No. 3 brand of spinnerbaits in the U.S., according to the 2016 Annual Anglers Trends Report by Southwick & Associates. Brashers will continue to be involved in the operation after selling to PRADCO.
War Eagle Custom Lures commanded 9.3 percent of U.S. market share in spinnerbaits in 2016, according to Southwick. Its best-selling model is the Screamin' Eagle, which is a weight-backward spinnerbait designed to be "burned" in clear-water situations to entice strikes from fish. War Eagle Custom Lures products have been credited with numerous top-level, national bass tournament victories and countless regional and local tournament wins. In addition to spinnerbaits, War Eagle offers a full
line of jigs, buzz baits, jigging spoons and jig heads.
