A few months ago, we met Summer Martin, a local Hilo girl who works at Mo's Fish and Chips while growing her own business on the side. She uses her unique images to make Hawaii-inspired pouches that reflect what inspires her. We caught up with her and asked her a few questions after she helped us create some custom Marlin pouches for our own private collection.
Flags used in Fishing, often called "Capture Flags" are the glad rags of fishing. Raise a capture flag on your boat and it is a public announcement of your catch. Using our Sundot Marine Flags denotes the species of fish you catch (or catch and release) and signals success to other boats, anglers and even spectators in the harbor.
Amy Firzgerald loves fishing because, "it is a way to feed my family with a known and sustainable food source. I hardly ever go to the store and pay for meat, I have definitely become mostly pescatarian. It beats paying for farm meat that didn't live happy, wild, fulfilling lives before ending up on someones table".
Where did the name "SUNDOT MARINE" come from? You probably never would have thought that a Fish Flag company would have anything to do with Egypt, but the inspiration for our logo in fact came from one of the oldest civilizations on Earth!
