Vance’s company, Line Cutterz, sells fishing line cutters fitted with a double-sided blade that can cut both mono-filament and braided fishing lines. The company also sells other fishing-related products such as cutting armbands, hook puller rings, lunker tamers, and bandit worms with plans for exploring other ventures.
