Del Romang Interview March 2023

Del Romang discusses the origins and evolution of Delkim products. He started in the mid-1970s due to the limited availability of fishing tackle. He modified existing bite alarms and began creating his own. The journey involved converting Heron and Optonic alarms and facing legal issues due to patent concerns. Del then had the idea to create his own bite alarm with a vibration sensing system. He experimented with running fishing line over a stylus, noticing frequency changes. This led to the development of Delkim’s unique vibration-based bite alarms. The interview also touches on design changes and the transition of the business to the next generation, highlighting the importance of family in the company’s legacy.
