Philip Sciortino, Jr. has has started a new tackle company operating out of his Tackle Box on Rt. 36 in Hazlet. The first offering from Fishin Nations is a two-piece 9-foot surf rod with a super-smooth spinning reel loaded with 65-pound test braided line. The relatively inexpensive combos come in red, white and blue for the U.S. and 26 other countries -- or other color combinations for countries ranging from Brazil to Portugal. Sciortino has also launched a Fishin Nations clothing line along with fish flag stickers.
