My name is John Kellett, and I am the founder of Kirby Creek Customs. I grew up loving the outdoors, fishing on Lake Norman in Huntersville, NC. After relocating to Murfreesboro, NC, I began fishing bass tournaments, particularly in the Albemarle Sound River Systems, and Gaston and Kerr Lakes.
For years, before the birth of Kirby Creek Customs, I would bridge my knowledge of the sport, and my unique craftsmanship to customize my own lures that I would use in tournaments. I then found myself gaining expertise and had a exclusive advantage over my competitors, with a different, realistic looking lure.
After graduating from Chowan University with a degree in Business Administration, I wanted to link my educational background with my passion for competitive bass fishing. Thus began the start of Kirby Creek Customs, a small business that provides customized, handcrafted fishing baits to anglers in a variety of patterns, types, and styles.
Aside from my passion for fishing, I am happily married with two young daughters, and a son on the way. I enjoy spending my time with family, hunting, and working out.
