From Montana Fly Company:
“Big news! Montana Fly Company founder, Adam Trina announces the sale of his company to Justin Nine. Justin is the current owner of Golden Fly Shop in Golden, Colorado, home of the famous “Streamer Wall”.
Adam was adamant about not letting his company go into the hands of a big corporation that would likely dilute or dissolve the brand. “So, when Justin approached me with a long-term vision, continued creativity, product expansion, and keeping MFC independently held, he had my attention,” says Adam. “We believe he is the perfect addition to our already powerhouse team.”
Adam will stay on at Montana Fly Company as President and there are no immediate plans to relocate the company headquarters and distribution center from Columbia Falls, Montana. We are eager for MFC fans to see what we unveil in the coming years as we work with Justin on a wide range of products and innovations.
In 22 years, Adam Trina and his team grew MFC to 500 employees worldwide with distributors in every fly fishing country. He’s put his heart and soul into making this company a powerhouse, and is stoked to see how far it’s come and now its promising future under Justin’s ownership. Here’s to what’s ahead, friends!”
