Hello I’m Jim Farmer, welcome to Cast Away Bait & Tackle where dreams are “just a cast away”.  I hope you enjoy looking through my site as well as reading my blog and watching my many video’s.  My passion for fishing began as a kid growing up in rural Kansas fishing local farm ponds, lakes and rivers. My passion grew even more when I joined the U.S. Navy and traveled from northern reaches of Canada to the Sea of Cortez fishing every lake, stream, river and pond in my path.

After enjoying a 20 year Navy career I retired here in the north Georgia area and have called the shores of Lake Lanier my home for over 20 years.  I’ve spent many years building and using my own tackle where my designs are drawn from years of knowledge with what works and certainly what doesn’t work!  Whether it’s Striper tackle, Bass tackle or personalized Instructional Services on Lake Lanier I’m here to help, just give me a call!
