Ron was an epic entrepreneur driven by an infectious passion for fishing. He and his younger brother Al were true pioneers in the era of modern fishing and left their indelible mark on the fishing industry. The brothers brought a scientific approach to angling that helped them evolve into elite tournament fishermen. The pair developed the Lindy Tackle Company and invented the Lindy Rig used by millions of walleye anglers. They went on to create a fishing media empire that began with the In-Fisherman magazine and expanded into radio, television, books and more. Then on to Lindner Media Productions, which spawned Lindner’s Angling Edge and an outcropping of subsidiaries.
