Appalachian Baits is a family owned business operating in the historic town of Abingdon, Virginia. Along with owning Appalachian Baits, Alan and Jamie Necessary are the owners of Sarge's Paylake and Campground in beautiful Green Cove, Virginia. After retiring from the Army as a Non-Commissioned Officer Alan, also known as "Sarge", moved back to his childhood hometown. He found a way to honor his father and grandfather who were avid fishermen, while introducing the sport of fishing to younger generations. Jamie is an elementary school librarian who is not comfortable with being in the spot light. She is happy to be the "silent partner" while encouraging Alan to be the "face and spokesperson" for Appalachian Baits.
While working at Sarge's paylake for the past two years, Alan has experimented and developed his own dough baits to use at our pay pond. Originally believed to work only for trout fishing, we have discovered our baits will work with different species of fish. What separates our dough baits from the others is the fact our baits sink and the use of sinkers may not be needed. As the success and demand for our baits have increased locally, we decided to expand our business to sell online. But don't let the bait names fool you........
