A phenominal photo. I had no clue anything like this existed. The bros did very well with the Two Rivers, Wisconsin plant. They were very personable men from what Charlie Nylund relayed to us. They showed up every year knew everyone and if you mentioned the name of your boat they could tell you the history of your Kahlenburg and when it might need a checkup or what not.

It was a time when American men built the best product they could and were proud to present it to the public. A handshake said it all and knowing and valuing your customers personally was what a great company did. One giant salute from fishtug.com to those industrious bros from Two Rivers,Wi and the indestructable product they produced and backed. And a huge thank you to Charlie Nylund for sharing this most remarkable photo. http://www.kahlenberg.com/
