Our Founder and Developer

George Bayless

  George had the idea for RGM OUTDOORS several years ago when he was developing ENVIO-WEIGHTS. ( ) and realized the independent dealer we had all grown up with were going out of business in the face of the growing mass merchandisers.  This trend was really hurting the new fisherman and woman because they were losing their source of information.

When George Developed The Step above fishing Systems it became apparent that there was a need for the dealer base in order to service the product and to work with the groups with the disabilities.  The name has now been changed to RGM Technical Assist

George is leaving the active day to day operations of the company to others to concentrate on the development of new products for the technical assist division

Feb. 2007 a milestone was achieved when George was appointed to the International Committee of the International Game Fish Association.

2008 George was elected into the National Freshwater Fishing Hall of Fame for his early work with environmentally friendly fishing Tackle.
