TOWN PROLOGUE

Welcome folks to Angler Town! I'm Glen Pla, your official mayor of this humble abode. A 3rd gen Florida native I have spent 18 years producing the Average Angler TV show! After 300 episodes, I've saddled up to find a new home to tell more engaging fishing tales. This website, anglertowntv is the first step towards finding a place on the aqua tube once again! Hang your hat and visit a spell, folks!

CARBON MARINE

UNIQUE INSHORE FISHING BOAT ACCESSORIES

Carbon Marine's inshore fishing boat accessories are made out of carbon fiber and epoxy making them the lightest in the world! From carbon fiber casting platforms to state of the art tiller handle extensions, push-poles and trolling motor mounts for kayaks!

OWNER JOE WELBOURN

Joe started Carbon Marine in 2007 on a quest to build a high quality tiller hand extension. Carbon fiber turned out to be the key element and Joe has expanded the business utilizing that material. No other company makes carbon fiber inshore boat accessories and Joe has been recognized as a true innovator in the boating accessory industry.

CARBON MARINE FEATURES:

IT'S IN THE INGREDIENTS!

 Carbon Marine specializes in design, repair, and manufacturing of items using advanced composites such as carbon fiber, aramid, and epoxies. 

LOCALLY OWNED

Owner Joe Welbourn and his crew work out of Tampa Bay but their reach and reputation is well known far outside of Florida! Testimonies like this are the norm and plentiful!

" I am the owner of a casting pillar and a tiller pillar, and couldn't be happier.
top knotch quality and I weigh 230 and my anglers are about the same, the casting deck is still as tight as the day I installed it new, superb construction and gets comments wherever I launch.
Thank you for a great job on everything you make, Joe! "

- TOBY WHITE

PUSH POLE RESTORATION

 Carbon Marine has also created a service we call "Push-pole Market".  We now buy, sell, trade, repair, modify, or restore any push-pole brand or model.  If you have unwanted broken push-pole pieces, just give us a call for an offer to buy your broken push-pole pieces.  In turn we rebuild these used push-poles into refurbished push-poles for sale to anyone seeking a lower priced push-pole.
