Dave’s Tangle Free


Dave’s Tangle Free is an Oregon-based manufacturer of lead-free, steel fishing weights. Our patent pending steel weights are not only better for the environment, but they also snag and tangle up less. So your investment in our product is less likely to end up on the bottom of a river or lake, leaving you more time to fish and less time fixing broken lines.

We believe in supporting American companies, making sustainable choices and spending time doing what you love in life (in our case that’s fishing, tinkering and enjoying time with our loving family and friends).

Our founder and owner, Dave Harding, grew up and lives in Portland, Oregon. When time allows he loves to fish on the Sandy, Columbia and surrounding tributary rivers and occasionally takes advantage of our close proximity to the abundance of the Pacific Ocean. He founded Dave’s Tangle Free in 2012 after just becoming a father. His passion for fishing, determination for finding a fishing weight that his son could safely handle AND the determination to solve the frustration of constantly losing weights to tangles and snags were combined after many months tinkering in our shop. The result was our Lead-Free Steel Fishing Weights. He has many more ideas and is always tinkering and thinking so who knows what he will come up with next. Stay tuned!
