St. Croix Customer Appreciation Day June 17

PARK FALLS, Wis. - “Customer Appreciation Day is always a special event that everyone in the St. Croix family looks forward to,” says St. Croix Vice President of Marketing, Jesse Simpkins. “But especially this year, since 2023 marks our 75th anniversary. We’re excited about welcoming anglers from all over the country to share the special brand of fun and camaraderie this event provides, whether they’re joining us in person or virtually.”

St. Croix Customer Appreciation Day draws anglers into the St. Croix family and experience in a way that no other rod manufacturer offers on such a personal level. The unique event will include fun opportunities to learn about the rod-building process, informative fishing seminars from St. Croix pros, casting classes, a free brat lunch, special 75th anniversary prize drawings, and much more. In-person festivities run from 7:00 AM through 3:00 PM CST on Saturday, June 17.

Anglers who can’t make it to Customer Appreciation Day in person should make their first stop for all virtual participation options.

Rod Building Tent – Learn the process of how St. Croix Rods are handcrafted. Multiple stations will be set up for you to see an abbreviated example of how our rods are built. Included in this will be a live rod winding demonstration.

Learn to Cast – Whether it’s spincasting, spinning, baitcasting, or even fly casting, learn the proper technique from the St. Croix Pros. A casting pond will be onsite to help assist in an enhanced educational experience.

Free Line Winding – Buy a combo, fishing system, or reel and have the spool filled with line at no cost (in-person CAD participants only).
