The Tanglefree story began during the 1971 California duck season. Jack and Dan Kiernan were using 200 wooden decoys, each anchored with a nylon rope and weight. To prevent the ropes from tangling, each decoy had to be collected and slowly loaded into the boat. After seeing another hunter quickly tossing decoys into his boat, the Kiernans asked him what his secret was and learned that he used tubing instead of rope. The concept soon resulted in the creation of Tanglefree tubular decoy line, which hit the market in 1972 and was patented a year later. Recently, the brand has expanded its product line to include decoys, waterfowl blinds and a wide range of accessories. Give yourself an edge this hunting season with Tanglefree decoys and the original Tanglefree decoy line.
