I am Tallyn Bronson, Co-Owner of TFC along with my father Jeremy Bronson. Talon Fishing Company officially launched at the end of 2021 with our Talon Hydro-Slay catarafts, but the TFC brand, idea, and vision began way before. I have been fishing ever since I can remember and fell in love with fly fishing after learning everything from my father at a very young age. This sparked a journey that has sent my father and I on an endless exploration of any place in the world that you can target a fish on the fly. We began to explore our own Colorado waters and as we did, we learned that we enjoyed doing everything on our own. The pursuit of not knowing and learning the small details of what made us successful on every river, lake or ocean was what truly motivated us to keep exploring.
Jeremy Bronson, TFC Co-Owner, states, “Over 35 years ago my grandfather told me stories of pack trips he went on. He told me stories of mountain ranges deep in the wilderness of Utah, Wyoming, Idaho, and Montana. In these stories he told me of the vast stretches of untouched water. Rivers and lakes with no roads for many miles. He spoke of rivers so full of trout that you couldn’t keep them off of a line. For me at a young age it sparked a fire to explore, and fish every ounce of what I call “forgotten water” that I could find... it wasn’t until I took my first float trip that I truly found a sense of what it was to explore water. After many years of exploring, I realized just how much water there was left to explore. There were side channels, back eddies, soft water hidden in canyons; there was forgotten water everywhere…”. This is what sparked the idea of Talon Fishing Company and the TFC Hydro Slay.
TFC is not only a company that builds products to increase your success and enhance your experience on the water, but a brand focused on the passion, dedication, and motivation we all share for the sport of fly fishing. In this last decade we have seen an immense increase in the popularity of fishing and specifically fly fishing which has led to a massive increase of pressure that our rivers and fish have encountered. We believe the promotion of conservation for our waterways and respect, kindness, and generosity we can show to other anglers is paramount so that we can all enjoy and share these amazing resources. That is why we are a Trout Unlimited Business Member and partnering with Trout Unlimited for the benefit of all our lakes, streams and waters that allow us to get out and fish. By being a TU Business Member, we can contribute a portion of our profits to conservation, while offering every customer a free one year Trout Unlimited gift membership with every order we ship or purchase you make. Explore. Fish. Respect. Preserve.
