About Orion Tackle:

My name is Mike Dahlager. I am 82 years old and I have been passionate about fishing for Chinook and Steelhead since I was a tadpole. 

I have been field testing and refining my lure designs on the Green, Skagit, Snake and Columbia Rivers for many years now. 

Previously, I sold these lures directly to other fishermen. Since January 1, 2017, I have been manufacturing them under the name Orion Tackle.  Why did I choose the name Orion? The constellation Orion has always been my good luck charm. When I get out of my truck before dawn at the river and I see the constellation Orion above, I know it’s going to be a great day of fishing.
