Fishbelly designs high quality fishing lures that imitate live bait fish in looks and actions. It is a brand that anglers look for in quality fishing lures. Anglers ask for them by its name. These lures guarantee to catch predatory fish in freshwater as well as saltwater.

My mission is to catch every predatory fish using the Fishbelly lures and document with pictures to show where it was caught, how it was caught (i.e. the rig used), and the size of the fish. I encourage you to do the same if you so choose so someday you can show your "album" to your kids and/or grandkids.

Try Fishbelly lures and you will find to enjoy fishing and catching fish with them.

Most of all, enjoy life and enjoy your fishing in the outdoors.

MissionOutdoors.Net is an on-line hunting show where it’s about as real, and live as it gets, and our videos can be found only on our YouTube channel, website, and Facebook page. Our show was started by David Enstad in 2015 after completing several years of combat operations in Iraq, and while our primary focus has been getting combat veterans and youth out on hunting adventures, it has grown into so much more.

While we would like to have thousands of acres of private big buck land of our own, and unlimited time to chase big bucks, the reality is we are just like you; the average weekend warrior public land hunter who typically works a ton of hours during the week, and for the most part can only get to the woods on weekends or occasional vacation days.

The way our show is structured allows us the ability to give current information on what’s happening in the woods. Everything from what stage the rut is currently in, too how the deer and other species are reacting to the changing weather patterns and the changing of the seasons.

While we mainly focus on deer, bear and turkey, we also run traplines for coyote and other fur-bearing animals, and give tips and tricks on the trapline as well.

Our off-season is rather misleading, as we really don’t have much of an off-season. When we are not out in the woods hunting or trapping, we’re out scouting for the following season and constantly gathering intelligence which we share in the form of tip videos on everything from how to find new ground, to aerial and topographical map use, scouting, trail cam use and check, stand placement, and ultimately we’re right back where we started and putting it all together for our next hunting adventure.


If you would like to be notified of when our videos are released, please sign up for our news letter, and we will notify you once we upload a new video. We promise to never share your information, or send out spamming emails.

Dismayed by the lack of marksmanship shown by their troops, Union veterans Col. William C. Church and Gen. George Wingate formed the National Rifle Association in 1871. The primary goal of the associa...

Dismayed by the lack of marksmanship shown by their troops, Union veterans Col. William C. Church and Gen. George Wingate formed the National Rifle Association in 1871. The primary goal of the association would be to "promote and encourage rifle shooting on a scientific basis," according to a magazine editorial written by Church.

After being granted a charter by the state of New York on November 17, 1871, the NRA was founded. Civil War Gen. Ambrose Burnside, who was also the former governor of Rhode Island and a U.S. senator, became the fledgling NRA's first president.

An important facet of the NRA's creation was the development of a practice ground. In 1872, with financial help from New York State, a site on Long Island, the Creed Farm, was purchased for the purpose of building a rifle range. Named Creedmoor, the range opened a year later, and it was there that the first annual matches were held.

Political opposition to the promotion of marksmanship in New York forced the NRA to find a new home for its range. In 1892, Creedmoor was deeded back to the state and NRA's matches moved to Sea Girt, New Jersey.

The NRA's interest in promoting the shooting sports among America's youth began in 1903 when NRA Secretary Albert S. Jones urged the establishment of rifle clubs at all major colleges, universities and military academies. By 1906, NRA's youth program was in full swing with more than 200 boys competing in matches at Sea Girt that summer. Today, youth programs are still a cornerstone of the NRA, with more than one million youth participating in NRA shooting sports events and affiliated programs with groups such as 4-H, the Boy Scouts of America, the American Legion, Royal Rangers, National High School Rodeo Association and others.

Due to the overwhelming growth of NRA's shooting programs, a new range was needed. Gen. Ammon B. Crichfield, adjutant general of Ohio, had begun construction of a new shooting facility on the shores of Lake Erie, 45 miles east of Toledo, Ohio. Camp Perry became the home of the annual National Matches, which have been the benchmark for excellence in marksmanship ever since. With nearly 6,000 people competing annually in pistol, smallbore and high-power events, the National Matches are one of the biggest sporting events held in the country today.

Through the association's magazine, The American Rifleman, members were kept abreast of new firearms bills, although the lag time in publishing often prevented the necessary information from going out quickly. In response to repeated attacks on the Second Amendment rights, NRA formed the Legislative Affairs Division in 1934. While NRA did not lobby directly at this time, it did mail out legislative facts and analyses to members, whereby they could take action on their own. In 1975, recognizing the critical need for political defense of the Second Amendment, NRA formed the Institute for Legislative Action, or ILA.

Meanwhile, the NRA continued its commitment to training, education and marksmanship. During World War II, the association offered its ranges to the government, developed training materials, encouraged members to serve as plant and home guard members, and developed training materials for industrial security. NRA members even reloaded ammunition for those guarding war plants. Incidentally, the NRA's call to help arm Britain in 1940 resulted in the collection of more than 7,000 firearms for Britain's defense against potential invasion by Germany (Britain had virtually disarmed itself with a series of gun-control laws enacted between World War I and World War II).

After the war, the NRA concentrated its efforts on another much-needed arena for education and training: the hunting community. In 1949, the NRA, in conjunction with the state of New York, established the first hunter education program. Hunter Education courses are now taught by state fish and game departments across the country and Canada and have helped make hunting one of the safest sports in existence. Due to increasing interest in hunting, NRA launched a new magazine in 1973, The American Hunter, dedicated solely to hunting issues year-round. NRA continues its leadership role in hunting today with the Youth Hunter Education Challenge (YHEC), a program that allows youngsters to build on the skills they learned in basic hunter education courses. YHECs are now held in 43 states and three Canadian provinces, involving an estimated 40,000 young hunters.

The American Hunter and The American Rifleman were the mainstays of NRA publications until the debut of The American Guardian in 1997. The Guardian was created to cater to a more mainstream audience, with less emphasis on the technicalities of firearms and a more general focus on self-defense and recreational use of firearms. The Guardian was renamed America's 1st Freedom in June of 2000.

Law enforcement training was next on the priority list for program development. Although a special police school had been reinstated at Camp Perry in 1956, NRA became the only national trainer of law enforcement officers with the introduction of its NRA Police Firearms Instructor certification program in 1960. Today, there are more than 13,000 NRA-certified police and security firearms instructors. Additionally, top law enforcement shooters compete each year in eight different pistol and shotgun matches at the National Police Shooting Championships held in Albuquerque, New Mexico.

In civilian training, the NRA continues to be the leader in firearms education. Over 125,000 certified instructors now train about 1,000,000 gun owners a year. Courses are available in basic rifle, pistol, shotgun, muzzleloading firearms, personal protection, even ammunition reloading. Additionally, nearly 7,000 certified coaches are specially trained to work with young competitive shooters. Since the establishment of the lifesaving Eddie Eagle GunSafe® Program in 1988, more than 28 million pre-kindergarten to fourth grade children have learned that if they see a firearm in an unsupervised situation, they should "STOP. DON'T TOUCH. RUN AWAY. TELL A GROWNUP." Over the past seven years, Refuse To Be A Victim® seminars have helped more than 100,000 men and women develop their own personal safety plan using common sense strategies.

In 1990, NRA made a dramatic move to ensure that the financial support for firearms-related activities would be available now and for future generations. Establishing the NRA Foundation, a 501 (c) (3) tax-exempt organization, provided a means to raise millions of dollars to fund gun safety and educational projects of benefit to the general public. Contributions to the Foundation are tax-deductible and benefit a variety of American constituencies including youth, women, hunters, competitive shooters, gun collectors, law enforcement agents and persons with physical disabilities.

While widely recognized today as a major political force and as America's foremost defender of Second Amendment rights, the NRA has, since its inception, been the premier firearms education organization in the world. But our successes would not be possible without the tireless efforts and countless hours of service our nearly five million members have given to champion Second Amendment rights and support NRA programs. As former Clinton spokesman George Stephanopoulos said, "Let me make one small vote for the NRA. They're good citizens. They call their congressmen. They write. They vote. They contribute. And they get what they want over time."

At Ugly Dog, we spend a lot of time in the field – sneaking through the woods, ranging across the prairie, trudging around the marsh. With a passion (okay, an obsession) for wingshooting, we field test all our products to make sure they’re reliable and tough enough to stand up to the rigors of a hard hunt. They do.

My Goal for Falco Firearms is to firearms education and access to the Firearm You want.

To many times I have been in gun shops and have seen people looking for a firearm. Most of the time with every few exception, the sales person behind the counter does not have the time or the education to help find the right gun.

Firearms are tools, I want Flaco Firearms to become a place to educate yourself and find the right gun for you.
